Damen to prepare more technical seminars in Nigeria
Following the success of the Technical Seminars that it introduced in Nigeria in 2019, Damen Shipyards Group will this year hold another series of events.
With the three-day long, intensive training events, Damen aims to provide its clients in the region with a better understanding of their vessels, with the goal, ultimately of optimising their efficiency of operations. However, the value of the seminars is clear and Damen now sees them as a potential vehicle for the transfer of skills and knowledge that could help develop the country’s own maritime and energy services industries.
During 2019, alongside on-board familiarization and basic maintenance training provided for almost all vessels delivered to Nigeria, Damen held three Technical Seminars in Nigeria. At each of the events, a Damen supplier was invited to present technical information and practical assignments to delegates regarding their contribution to Damen’s vessels.
This year, the Technical Seminars will feature Heinen and Hopman (March 17-19), presenting on their ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems. This seminar will be followed by further events with Caterpillar (June 23-25) and Alphatron (October 13-15). The seminars will be held, as previously, at the Nestoil Training Centre in Port Harcourt, itself built by Damen.
