New drilling simulator to attract employees

The opportunity to work together as a team is one of the most important advantages of the new simulator Maersk Drilling is in the process of mounting in Svendborg, Denmark. The simulator is intended to help attract some of the 3000 employees who must be hired by 2016.

To be put in the worst possible situation imaginable is rarely anyone’s wish, especially when you work on a drilling rig. Yet placing employees of Maersk Drilling in the most difficult situations of the same environment they normally work in, is exactly the intension of the new drilling simulator at Maersk Training Center in Svendborg.

“In order to make sure that our people have the right competencies, we have always trained employees individually through practical and theoretical tests. Now we are in a situation where we can do the tests as we would on a drilling rig. The employees and leaders can work through the process as a team,” says Allan McColl, Senior Lead Drilling Specialist in Maersk Drilling. McColl holds the responsibility for the content of the courses that involve the drilling simulator. He also ensures that the simulation experience is as close to reality as possible.
