Maersk Training to Open First Middle East Facility at Dubai World Central

•    Danish multinational will offer broad portfolio of courses designed for offshore industries
•    High-end simulators to enrich learning experience, promote regional talent, raise bar on operational safety and performance

Dubai-UAE: 01 March, 2015 – Maersk Training, part of the Denmark-based Maersk Group and a leading provider of specialist training and learning courses in the energy and maritime sectors, has announced its decision to set up its first state-of-the-art training facility in the Middle East at Dubai World Central (‘DWC’).

The new Maersk Training center will offer companies in the Middle East, Africa and Asia’s offshore industries – particularly the oil & gas and maritime sectors – a wide range of courses designed to develop regional talent and set new benchmarks in safety and operational performance.  

Located at DWC’s Business Park enclave, the facility will deploy a combination of classroom-based techniques and simulator-based instruction. The center is scheduled to begin its first training session in Q3 of 2015.

Paolo Serra, Vice President of Business Park, Dubai World Central, said: “We are very happy to welcome Maersk Training to our master-planned community at DWC. The establishment of its center marks an important milestone in our journey towards the creation of a well-rounded ecosystem for global businesses looking to get closer to their customers and expand their operational footprint.”

The news about the facility in Dubai comes shortly after Maersk Training announced two major global contracts, one with a major offshore drilling contractor and the other with an oil major.

Claus Bihl, CEO, Maersk Training, said: “Our new center at Dubai World Central is an important expansion for Maersk Training. It will help us tap into one of the most economically vibrant regions in the world and support our global and regional customers. We have invested significantly into making the Maersk Training DWC center a world-class training facility. For instance, it will be equipped with a unique simulator environment – making it one of the few facilities outside Denmark to have such a system.”

Vijay Rangachari, Regional Managing Director, Maersk Training, said: “Placing our UAE facility at Dubai World Central’s Business Park has been a natural choice for us. In addition to providing an optimal environment, we value proximity with the Al Maktoum International Airport, which helps us maximize our competitiveness and drive cost efficiency, not least for our clients across the region.”

Established in 1978, Maersk Training has grown from providing training for companies within the Maersk Group to servicing individual students as well as major organizations within the global maritime, wind and oil & energy sectors.

Within the last three years, Maersk Training has doubled its revenue and number of training centers, and now operates in ten maritime and offshore production hubs around the globe. The company spends more than 100,000 man-days per year in training, using some of the most advanced training simulators in the world.
