Canada’s Service Technicians complete BST training


We are pleased to share service technicians, Allen Longhi and Alesh Siveram, based at our DBS Canada service centre have recently completed Basic Survival Training (BST) and Helicopter Underwater Escape Training/Helicopter Underwater Egress Breathing Apparatus (HUET/HUEBA).

The course trains individuals in the hazards and mitigation controls associated with working in an offshore environment. To achieve this, they also had to complete Canada’s Association of Petroleum Producers medicals and H2S Alive training, ensuring all training components are in accordance with the required training standards.

With this certification, we can make use of our extensive gearbox knowledge and capabilities in the Canadian oil and gas market. Coincidentally, Cambridge’s first project on an Offshore Oil Rig is to overhaul two original heritage David Brown HSW500DH water injection pump highspeed gearboxes. We look forward to this new project and our future in offshore oil and gas rigs in Canada.

Canada’s extensive field service capabilities permit gearbox installations and onsite overhauls in the marine industry, pulp and paper and steel industries, Along with repairs of high speed gearboxes, kiln drives and hydro turbine drives, and services including laser alignments, girth gear alignments, vibration analysis, supervision, turnkey solutions and onsite machining.
