What’s in Store for 2020?
Over the years the team at Namaka Subsea have been collating their collective knowledge to develop a series of training courses on various topics to help support the subsea industry. This year sees the launch of their new continued professional development service, starting with a series of awareness courses. The first of which will be:
• 3 Day Diving Operations Auditing & Assurance (Awareness Course)
• 1 Day Failure Modes Effects & Criticality Analysis (Awareness Course)
• 1 Day Diver Umbilical Excursion Supervisor Check Course
Later in the year will see a number of other courses being launched including topics such as ‘Diving System Automation Functional Safety (Awareness Course)’ and ‘Trainee Offshore Air Diving Supervisors Course’. As well as these there are several other courses planned for development and release throughout the year and information will be announced on the Company website as and when available.
Lee Duncan, Business Development Manager, said “The growth of Namaka Subsea has exceeded our expectations within our first 5 years. We have been presented with many different challenges, all unique to each individual location and project, however, working with such a passionate and close team has been an enjoyable experience.
Our Aberdeen office has been very successful over a short period of time, securing contracts which have allowed us to invest in operations in Asia and South America. Our Asia office has been involved in a number of unique projects, including providing subsea operational support for an SBM subsea hose umbilical change out project and the development of an automated functional safety management system for diving support vessels. Trinidad has seen its first contract award with an international oil and gas operator and first project completion by the end of 2019.
2020 is already shaping up to be another exceptional year with contracts and projects in the Middle East justifying an operational presence in the region.”
