Stream Marine commits to offshore training center in northwest England
Mersey Maritime has unveiled plans for a new offshore and maritime training facility in the northwest UK.
BIRKENHEAD, UK – Mersey Maritime has unveiled plans for a new offshore and maritime training facility in the northwest UK.
The cluster organization for the local maritime sector initiated discussions with potential partners from across the region’s public and private sectors to secure the support needed to bring Glasgow-based Stream Marine Training to Merseyside.
Stream Marine will establish the maritime and offshore training center in the Wirral, south of Liverpool, investing up to £1.5 million ($1.92 million) in new facilities at Tower Quays and a new fire training ground along Duke Street, Birkenhead.
The nearest current offshore facility, in Lancashire to the north, is said to be heavily oversubscribed, so there could be a large catchment potential for Stream Marine Training in the Liverpool area.
