Evacuating the ship at sea is always a dangerous operation that involves risks. By practicing evacuation and survival in advance, safety of life at sea can be improved.
Survival and evacuation training for the crew is often performed in a hurry, when the ship is in port. These exercises are one of the greatest work safety hazards for the crew. The superb facilities and authentic equipment of Meriturva's modern Survival Training Centre in Lohja offer a better and safer way to gain important survival skills.
Meriturva's training pool is the biggest in Finland, and with its changeable weather conditions with wind and waves, it creates amazingly realistic and challenging conditions.
The main pool has a water temperature of 70°Fahrenheit (21°C) water, but also a cold water pool with 35°Fahrenheit (3°C) water is available for teaching how to protect oneself against hypothermia.
Meriturva's experienced crew is prepared to customize the course contents according to the needs of your group.
