MAERSK has completed the acquisition of safety training specialist ResQ for its subsidiary Maersk Training.
According to a statement from Maersk, ResQ has five survival centres in Norway to cater for training in the North Sea. The company offers more than 70 course titles, while the crisis management part consists of a full emergency response setup, which can be fully customised to the customer’s needs and handle all aspects of an emergency. ResQ has 67 permanent employees and more than 300 temporary resources spread across the country.
According to Maersk, it has a close relationship with ResQ. It is the largest third-party service provider for Maersk Training in Norway. Since 2019, ResQ has been a subcontractor of Maersk Training delivering services to support the Maersk Training’s global training management contracts.
Maersk said the acquisition of ResQ provides a platform that will allow it to service the offshore renewables industry in the North Sea and significantly increase its presence in Norway as well as further build its portfolio of training courses.
Maersk Training CEO David Skov said ResQ is a well-managed business with renowned competencies within training services.
“As part of Maersk Training’s ambitions to become a leading training provider with end-to-end services across the North Sea region, we regard ResQ as a perfect fit, as it will significantly increase our presence in Norway and increase our portfolio of training courses,” he said.
