Major contracts from Mexico: Rheinmetall to build and operate training centre for oil platforms

Order worth €250 million

Rheinmetall has been awarded contracts worth €250 million to build and operate a modern centre for initial and advanced training of platform personnel for Mexico’s state-owned oil and gas producer PEMEX. Following a three-year construction and installation phase, Rheinmetall will operate the centre in Mexico for a period of twelve years.

For Rheinmetall’s Simulation and Training business unit, the order represents a twofold strategic success. The unit’s largest-ever order for civilian simulation technology, the contract creates a new commercial mainstay. In addition, it reaffirms Rheinmetall’s presence in the high-growth Latin American market, opening the door to new customer relationships.

The "Centro de Adiestramiento en Procesos de Producción" (CAPP or Training Centre for Production Processes) will enable PEMEX to prepare its employees for highly demanding tasks on the company’s oil platforms. Safety, process optimization and increased efficiency are at the heart of the wide-ranging, high-quality package of measures that PEMEX is currently implementing, drawing on Rheinmetall’s comprehensive expertise in the world of advanced simulation solutions. Besides state-of-the-art simulators for oil and gas production and processing, the CAPP will feature full-mission simulators for various cranes and scale models of on-board oil production equipment for operator training, together with laboratories, classrooms and e-learning facilities. Starting in 2019, around a thousand personnel will undergo training at the CAPP every year.

In its capacity as prime contractor for the turnkey project, Rheinmetall subsidiary RH Mexico Simulation & Training S.A. de C.V. is supplying all of the infrastructure and equipment for the CAPP, which it will then operate for a period of twelve years. The package includes training of local operating personnel as well as facility management.

This important order from Mexico proves that Rheinmetall AG’s global reputation for excellence in the field of security and mobility clearly extends to its simulation and training technology. Here, the Düsseldorf-based Group’s product spectrum encompasses ground, maritime, process and flight simulation technology for civil and military users, ranging in complexity from solutions for individual instruction to highly advanced networked systems for training entire military formations or larger industrial user groups.

Worldwide, there are very few suppliers whose product portfolios in the field of simulation and training cover such a wide spectrum.
