Prosolvia / Schlumberger, Geco-Prakla Contract Brings Simulation-based Training to the Off-shore Sector
Prosolvia and Schlumberger, Geco-Prakla announced today that they have signed
a contract for the provision of a crew-training simulator for ships used in
the oil and seismic survey sector. Delivery to take place before the end of
1998. The companies have also agreed on a frame contract.
As part of its high-technological development, Geco-Prakla has awarded
Prosolvia a multi-million contract for the development of an advanced training
simulator. The purpose of the simulator is to provide realistic training for
crews working with the new control system that Geco-Prakla is introducing.
This new control system will entail dramatic changes in the way that crews
work; it is therefore important to be able to accurately and effectively train
crews prior to their placement in the new environment.
"This collaboration opens the off-shore sector to simulation based training.
The increased demand and competition in the offshore sector will be easier to
meet with Prosolvia's solutions. We are very excited about working in this way
with Geco-Prakla, and view the deal as strategically important to both our
companies." States Johan Ekener, President and CEO of Prosolvia AB
