Fire Fighting Training Units


The UK's Royal Navy is to be provided with unique 'state of the art' Fire Fighting Training Units under a contract signed last week between the Naval Recruiting and Training Agency (NRTA) and Flagship Training Ltd, a joint venture company formed by Vosper Thorneycroft (VT), GEC Marconi and Johnson Controls. The venture will use emerging technology to create two new 'state-of-the-art' advanced fire fighting training facilities for the Royal Navy, in Portsmouth, Plymouth and Faslane. The contract from NRTA is worth approximately 180M over a period of 20 years. VT will undertake some 70 percent of the work.
The Units will be designed to create realistic fire fighting scenarios, using environmentally safe propane fuelled fires and artificial training smoke, to achieve an ideal simulated shipborne environment . The facilities will train naval personnel in coping effectively with the hazards of fire and smoke at sea to enable them to prevent loss of life, to avoid injury and minimise damage, thereby allowing a ship to retain its operational capability.
