LUANDA, Angola – 3t EnerMech, an alliance between 3t Energy Group and EnerMech, has launched a training and competency service in Angola, said to be the first of its kind in the country. 

An unnamed international drilling contractor will be the first company to use the training facility in Luanda, developed in partnership with EnerMech’s local entity SoniMech.

The center will provide lifting operations training and competence services, likely extended to cover the full 3t EnerMech portfolio later this year.

Januario Nhembo is the training manager, delivering courses in Portuguese across a range of disciplines including offshore crane operator stage 1-3, banksman slinger and lifting awareness.

Customized learning solutions will draw on a range of software and technology tools including simulation, e-learning, VR-learning, R3 spaced-repetition learning and augmented reality.

As part of the new contract, an offshore lifting training and assessment program will be developed for ExxonMobil’s deepwater Kizomba development in block 15.

This will include a review of all relevant competencies for the contractor’s crane operators with the program delivered by 3t EnerMech personnel.
