Based at the NOWTC training facility on Long Island, New York, the partnership is focused on providing online and practical training in the use of GUS systems to vessel crews and technicians working at the South Fork Wind project, which is under construction by leading offshore wind developer, Ørsted and its joint venture partner Eversource.

Managing Director of Pict Offshore, Philip Taylor, said, “We’re delighted to see the launch of Get Up Safe training in the US. Making sure that the operators and users of the system are competent and confident is a critical part of realising the safety and cost benefits that the system has to offer windfarm developers and operators.

“Partnering with Maersk Training, a recognised global leader in training for the offshore wind sector, provides the necessary assurance of quality when taking this new solution into live operations.”

General Manager at Maersk Training, Tonny Moeller, added, “Maersk Training is very pleased to extend its collaboration with Ørsted and Eversource and work alongside Pict to bring this exciting and innovative product to a new market. 

"Our team has worked hard to set up and launch GUS training with NOWTC and we’re proud to be at the leading edge of developments as offshore wind takes off in the Northeast of the US.”
