Strengthening its presence in northern Mexico, RelyOn Nutec will open a new training center in Tampico, Tamaulipas, during the second half of 2022. The company's latest hub seeks to further support the oil and gas industry in that region, while keeping its commitment to improve safety.

The company told MBN that the biggest industry risk from a work environment perspective is the lack of training and budget allocated to safety measures, which has increased the frequency of accidents. RelyOn Nutec seeks to change this reality through its latest state-of-the-art training facility, which will incorporate the company's full suite of safety and technical training services and simulation technology.

RelyOn Nutec decided to open the center in Tamaulipas because the state boasts a resilient industrial sector, with major oil and gas companies and where demand for safety services is very high. The new headquarters will be located 20 minutes from the Tampico International Airport and six minutes from the city’s hotel area, which includes the BONITO INN, Holiday Inn and City Express.

The new center will include six classrooms and a simulation room, where the latest training courses will be offered, including the T-BOSIET, T-HUET, T-FOET, API RP 2D APIU Approved Edition, Entry and Rescue in Confined Spaces, Fire Fighting and Rescue Advanced, Work at Heights and Rescue and Training in Compressed Air Emergency Breathing Systems (CA-EBS). In addition, the company will provide key certifications, such as IADC, IWCF and API.  Furthermore, the company announced it will create alliances with other educational centers to make training and safety equipment accessible to new generations and future operators. 

“One of the biggest benefits for members of the industry in central and northern Mexico is that they will have access to quality training and consulting services, as well as having a global presence with us. Currently, we provide the only training center in Mexico that offers the OPITO certification, which is an organization of competences in the US energy sector that works to develop a safe and qualified workforce by promoting global standards and qualifications. These skills have become a must for the industry. We want to be their main ally when it comes to safety,” RelyOn Nutec told MBN.

RelyOn Nutec said it is excited to take this step and continue expanding throughout Mexico, considered its second home. The company announced it will provide additional information regarding its new center, welcoming the entire oil and gas industry to visit its facilities and attend the inauguration in June.

The company is a global provider of security, compliance and competition services and solutions. It has 32 facilities, helping clients improve people’s safety, assets and the environment through innovative digital services, including digital learning, simulation technology and a suite of SaaS applications. RelyOn Nutec’s wide variety of services and high quality has made it a leading global safety partner for major companies, including Seadrill, ENI, Halliburton, EMSEP, IPS, Saipem, Modec, Baker Hughes, Petronas, Fieldwood, Lukoil, Hokchi, Shell Mexico and Schlumberger.
