Beluga Offshore Training Academy forms partnership to provide new training

September 21 - Beluga Offshore Training Academy (BOTA) and Deutsche WindGuard (DWG) have signed a cooperation agreement proposing joint training courses on offshore safety.

From the spring of 2011, BOTA will combine basic maritime navigation training with module-structured safety-at-work training courses for offshore industries including project and heavy lift shipping. The alliance with DWG will provide a high level of expertise on offshore work, wind energy and professional training.


BOTA's modern training centre, which will be completed in the spring of 2011, will be equipped with crane simulators, a pool for safety exercises on and in water, lifeboats, helicopter underwater-escape training (HUET), a training tower and comprehensive survival apparatus. Besides operating a centre with four company-owned wind tunnels and managing the AlphaVentus offshore wind farm, DWG's offshore safety training programme is certified byGermanischer Lloyd according to OPITO standards, and the new alliance with BOTA shows they are pressing forward with their entry into the offshore market.


Emilio Reales, managing director of BOTA emphasises: " With our partnership with DWG we will meet the high demands of the offshore industry in every way and create an integrated training centre which is unique in Europe."
