Chemical Process Training Centre (CPTC)
Scope: Training centre management and training delivery
Client: Economic Development Board of Singapore
Location: Jurong Island, Singapore
The Chemical Process Training Centre (CPTC) was the first training centre in the world to contain an industry-scale petrochemical process plant. Designed to operate as an actual production unit in a typical commercial plant, the process unit allows trainees to experience real plant operations, thus enhancing their training experience in controlled conditions with reduced risk.
Petrofac managed the CPTC on behalf of the Economic Development Board of Singapore for almost eight years. We provided an extensive range of competence based technical training and assessment, focused on skills assessment and development of operations and maintenance personnel for the oil, gas and petrochemical industries. This included shift rotation, permit to work with task risk assessments, start-up and shut-down exercises, emergency response and fire drill exercises.
When undertaking competence development, either in workshops, on skids, or on the plant, we replicated the client’s own specific work place environment as closely as possible, to best suit the needs of country, customer or specific nationalisation programmes. This enabled effective transfer and implementation of the technical competence developed into the client’s workplace.
This state-of-the-art centre included:
