Simac and Dong collaborate on education
Simac Training and Dong Energy Wind Power are cooperating on an education of marine and helicopter coordinators for offshore wind farms. Simac assist with the training of "Marine & Helicopter Coordinators" for Dong's future MHCC in Grimsby.
"It is with great satisfaction that SIMAC Training managed to offer the best solution for Dong Energy Wind Power, as it emphasizes that the daily focus of the organization is bearing fruit. Furthermore, the close cooperation with Dong Energy Wind Power about their ambitious upgrading program contributed with insight and input which SIMAC's own students also will be able to profit from in the long term," says Bo Nørregaard Jensen, course leader for SIMAC Training.
In weeks 31-33, SIMAC Training has been in charge of the total 12 weeks of upgrading which Dong Energy Wind Power provides its new employees. During the summer this has led to a flurry of activity on Graaesvej 27 in Svendborg, where SIMAC Training has its address.
Students started with a week of ROC radio course to familiarize them with maritime radio communication. Subsequently, one week is spent in SIMAC's advanced simulators with a focus on maritime technology and an understanding of merchant ships maneuverability. The final week was centered around the role of marine and helicopter operator where SIMAC Trainings instructors had built a simulation environment on data supplied by DONG Energy Wind Power's existing wind farms.
DONG Energy Wind Power employees have now, after three weeks in Svendborg, returned to England after graduation. The graduate employees, then begin their new job function in Grimsby Marine & Helicopter Coordination Centre.
