Engr. Simbi Wabote, the Executive Secretary, Nigerian Content Development and Monitoring Board (NCDMB) visited the Prime Atlantic training centre in Ipara, Ogun state on February 19, 2020. The Group Managing Director, Prime Atlantic Limited, Ayo Otuyalo and the Chief Business Development Officer, Prime Atlantic Limited, Folake Soyannwo gave him a tour of the world-class facility.
A presentation and a few demonstrations of some safety and servicing equipment and techniques were presented to Engr. Simbi by Prime Atlantic’s certified trainers and engineers.
Here is what he had to say about the center:
“It’s very impressive. As you can see a lot of investment has gone into this. The facility from what I understand was commissioned 10 years ago and I am impressed that they are still maintaining the standard. It is international standard; it’s got all the international certifications and affiliations. That is what we want because we don’t want substandard training, knowing fully well that the oil and gas industry does not accept mediocrity or unqualified people to work on board. I can only say that Nigeria is making tremendous progress in terms of building human capacity in the technical skill area.”
