In a commitment to building capacity and fostering educational growth, EACOP’s contractors and vendors are implementing the “Train the Trainer” program. This initiative aims to enrich Uganda’s education and training sector by raising awareness among professors and trainers in tertiary and vocational institutions about valuable pipeline assets. Through comprehensive training sessions, EACOP’s contractors and vendors share essential insights into the design, technical specifications, operations, and maintenance of the diverse equipment slated for use in the project.
One notable contributor to this initiative is Avanti Energy Services Limited, a Ugandan company specializing in supplying the Pigging system for the EACOP Pipeline. The Pigging system, a sophisticated tool utilized to clean, inspect, measure conditions, and assess pipeline integrity, is set to play a crucial role in the project. Avanti recently conducted an enlightening training session at Uganda Petroleum Institute, Kigumba (UPIK), on December 12th and 13th. This session, led by Mr. John Onwa, provided in-depth insights into the intelligent features of the Pigging system.
The “Train the Trainer” program not only emphasizes theoretical knowledge but also focuses on practical applications. Avanti’s training at UPIK was attended by Department Heads and technicians from various departments, including Upstream, Instrumentation, Welding, HSE, Downstream, Mechanical, and Electrical. This collaborative effort between EACOP, its contractors, and Avanti underscores a commitment to enhancing educational landscapes and promoting expertise in Uganda.
Such initiatives represent a pivotal step towards a more informed and skilled workforce, ensuring the successful implementation of projects like the EACOP Pipeline. The collaboration between EACOP, its contractors, and Avanti showcases a dedication to fostering knowledge transfer, empowering individuals, and contributing to the overall development of Uganda’s educational and professional sectors.
