Ørsted has partnered with safety innovators Active Training Team Ltd (ATT) to build a learning center which will serve a number of industries across the Humber, the UK.
The facility, to be designed by ATT and located at MODAL’s training complex in Immingham, will start off hosting an induction day developed for the construction team working on Ørsted’s Hornsea Project Two offshore wind farm.
According to Ørsted, this fully immersive training program is designed to bring about transformational behavioral change in attitudes to safety.
The center is expected to be launched early next year.
“The three key elements that have proven to be the DNA of safe, successful projects are to plan, care and communicate to colleagues. This training will envelope all three of these elements into one impactful training session,” said Jason Ledden, Senior Project Manager for Ørsted’s Hornsea Two.
“We understand that there are a whole host of industries across the Humber which require the high standards of safety that we do; so, by allowing others to utilise the facility, we hope that we’ll be able to reduce safety-related incidents in a number of sectors across the region.”
The 1.4GW Hornsea Project Two will feature 165 Siemens Gamesa 8MW turbines installed some 89km from the Yorkshire coast. It will become the world’s biggest offshore wind farm when operational in 2022.
