Hibernia Offshore Operations Simulator Facility Under Construction At Marine Institute
January 29th, 2014
A new simulator facility at the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University of Newfoundland will provide offshore operators with advanced and customized training for the supply and support of offshore facilities and production platforms.
The Hibernia Offshore Operations Simulator Facility was made possible by donations of $4.4 million from the Hibernia Management and Development Company Ltd. (HMDC) and $750,000 from the provincial government’s Infrastructure Funding Program. The Government of Canada, through ACOA’s Innovative Communities Fund, is providing more than $1 million to the Marine Institute (MI), which mainly supports the simulator, and also includes smaller components related to helicopter safety training, and planning and design components related to MI’s Holyrood Marine Base.
