    Rolls-Royce opens training centre in Brazil

    Training // March 12, 2014

    Rolls-Royce has opened a new training centre in Brazil to cater for customers operating vessels with Rolls-Royce systems that work in country’s offshore oil and gas industry.

    The centre is located at the existing Rolls-Royce Marine Services site in Niteroi, just outside of Rio de Janeiro. It will provide a wide range of training programs, initially in support of winch and dynamic positioning (DP) operations.

    Paulo Rolim, Rolls-Royce, Country Manager – Marine, Brazil, said: “The provision of training to our customers in Brazil is critical in ensuring their ability to maximize the value and full potential of the equipment and systems onboard their highly complex vessels.

    “Getting optimal performance from the latest DP systems and deck machinery requires hours of hands on training, and doing so in a safe and cost effective training centre helps ensure crew members are better equipped to meet the real life challenges they face when out at sea, in often challenging conditions.  

    "The training concepts, course materials and equipment are based on those used at the Rolls-Royce Training Centre for Europe located in Ålesund, Norway. The courses and simulators have been designed in cooperation with the Offshore Simulator Centre, also in Norway, and represent the latest in bridge simulation technology."
