Location: Mardyck, France
Summer 2015 AKELA was approached by TOTAL first to discuss about sea safety and survival training issues and subsequently to participate in a tender to supply a complete OPITO BOSIET training package.
AKELA won the tender based on our proven expertise, good track record and fair offer. The order came in early 2016 to supply the training facility structure incorporating training pool and steel/aluminium training level structures, HUET simulator, TEMPSC & davit, installation supervision, training of all staff, training material and OPITO accreditation support. Later on, the scope was expanded to include all ancillary training equipment required for BOSIET training and also IMIST accreditation.
The installation was delayed due to change of plans within TOTAL and OLEUM regarding the location of training site. Installation was completed in autumn 2018 followed by train-the-trainer exercises. The OPITO approved training centre is currently operated jointly with a Dutch training provider.
