IDEX 2015: Comprehensive Training Comes into the Crosshairs at Fr. Lürssen

At the IDEX/NAVDEX 2015 exhibition, Fr. Lürssen Werft promotes its full portfolio of surface platforms (ranging from fast patrol and interceptor craft and boats to large fleet support ships), integrated logistics support (including system documentation, spare part management and supply, and repair, refits and upgrades), and consultancy, with the latter focusing on infrastructure, logistic support, material packages, and damage control.

MILITARY TECHNOLOGY was told in Abu Dhabi that comprehensive training of naval crews became a centrepiece of the shipyards’s naval expertise. It is absolutely essential in taking full advantage of a naval ship’s capabilities, Fr. Lürssen notes in one of its latest presentations. The shipbuilder, which has several manufacturing locations across northern Germany, takes advantage of well-experienced instructors that provide lessons in basic engineering and on-board training in skills and knowledge of naval ships and their complex systems, subsystems, and components. All this expertise is offered by Lürssen Logistics, which provides comprehensive training courses to international clients since about three decades. Naval customers benefit from the full spectrum of training courses that take place in classrooms at the Lürssen Training Centre (LTC) in Lemwerder near Bremen – or aboard naval ships for practical exercises in a variety of fields, including language training; operational and maintenance training; know-how transfer; ship safety training; and training management.

This expertise goes in line with the elementary need to familiarise crews of the shipyard’s clients with the different systems and subsystems on-board naval platforms. Fr. Lürssen’s training concept enables them to deploy their assets for the spectrum of tasks in the maritime security environment.
