FTO member RelyOn Nutec hosting Lunch & Learn to introduce innovative crane and lifting simulation technology

RelyOn Nutec UK is to bring its innovative crane and lifting simulation technology to Teesside, via an exciting lunch & learn session

Forth & Tay Offshore member RelyOn Nutec, leaders in practical and digital training for traditional and renewable energy, is hosting a lunch & learn session to introduce its crane and lifting simulation technology to the UK market, and the invite is extended to all F&TO cluster members. 

This free event will be held at RelyOn Nutec’s training centre in Teesside on Wednesday 24th January, and will give attendees the opportunity to get some hands-on experience with its mobile crane simulator, as well as highlighting the many tangible benefits that simulation technology can bring to organisations involved in high risk operations.

This sessions aims to further RelyOn’s overall goal to improve workforce safety across the energy sector and related industries. Offshore wind incident data continues to show that lifting operations are one of the primary risk areas for the sector, and simulators offer operators the chance to train in a risk-free environment and to practice difficult lifting procedures prior to worksite operations.

The company has invested heavily in its technology since acquiring a simulation business back in 2019. It now offers a range of crane and lifting scenarios including the build of an offshore wind turbine, port crane operations, and an offshore oil and gas platform exercise. Each of these scenarios will be available for attendees to view and test at the upcoming lunch & learn.

Helen Dunn, Head of Sector - Renewables, at RelyOn, said: “This lunch & learn is a great opportunity for any person who has a responsibility for lifting operations. Simulators can be used to train and assess the workforce, and allow operators the opportunity to fully rehearse emergency procedures in a safe and controlled environment, without interrupting day-to-day operations.

“At the session, we’ll have our mobile crane simulator so that our guests can get some hands-on experience. The mobile sim is a cost effective alternative to our full size simulators and can be easily transported to customer sites. Simulation technology is becoming increasingly accessible and will undoubtedly play a major role in training of future cohorts of crane operators.”

RelyOn is extending the invitation to its session to any person involved in lifting operations. More information about the event can be found here and those looking to attend should sign up via the online registration form.
