    Ezra Holdings unveils new training centre

    Training // January 12, 2011

    Ezra Holdings Limited saw a long-standing ambition realised with the launch of the EMAS Academy, a S$10 million maritime training institute dedicated to advancing safety and operational standards in the industry.

    The state-of-the-art training and simulator centre was officially opened earlier this week by Mrs Lim Hwee Hua, Minister in the Prime Minister's Office and Singapore's Second Minister for Finance and Transport.

    Located within the 18-hectare Ubi Techpark, EMAS Academy offers offshore and marine
    professionals a structured curriculum that will increase their operational efficiency while enhancing their ability to safeguard lives, assets and the environment.

    Using the latest in simulation technology, it will give crews the chance to hone their
    skills in a large array of operational environments and prepare them to handle even the most trying conditions at sea, minimising the risk of mishaps and expediting the successful conclusion of offshore projects. The facilities will also enable EMAS to simulate live projects for clients.
