  • RBR Group has signed a deal with Mozambique training specialist, ROTC
  • The companies will cooperate to tender for contracts and supply services to the maritime and LNG offshore construction industries in Mozambique
  • The MoU with ROTC will create opportunities for the local population to increase and formalise their traditional maritime skills

RBR Group has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Mozambique training specialist, Regional Offshore Training Centre (ROTC).

RBR’s subsidiary, Futuro Skills Mozambique, and ROTC will combine their strengths in skills training to tender for contracts and supply services to the maritime and LNG offshore construction industries in Mozambique.

Futuro Skills delivers technical, commercial and community training programs to the Mozambican labour force. Futuro Skills is an accredited training company, according to the U.K. Engineering Construction Industry Training Board, which is an accepted standard for employment on LNG projects.

Similarly, ROTC offers “world-class safety training.” The training targets employees in the offshore oil and gas, maritime, port and terminals, and transport and logistics sectors.

Mozambique is essentially a maritime nation, due to its extended coastline. The maritime support industry within the East African country, is expected to be significant.

“Both parties have agreed to contribute their respective sector-specific strengths, facilities and human resources to offer clients a combined set of services and delivery locations that is unparalleled in Mozambique,” RBR CEO Richard Carcenac said.

“This is truly a case where the whole is greater than the sum of the parts and will deliver cost efficiencies for our clients,” Richard continued.

The MoU with ROTC will create opportunities for the local population to increase and formalise their traditional maritime skills to be utilised in the LNG and maritime industries.
