The rector of the University of Cádiz, Francisco Piniella, together with Fidel Echevarría, General Coordinator of the European University of the Seas (SEA-EU) the director of the Secretariat for Planning and Monitoring of SEA-EU, Antonio Javier González, and Irene de Andrés, Local Manager of SEA-EU, visited the brand new facilities of the Navantia Training Center (NTC) in San Fernando by José Antonio Rodríguez Poch, director of the Bahía de Cádiz Shipyard, Elena Corrales, director of the NTCm and Joaquín de los Santos, head of Technological Management at Navantia Sistemas.
During the tour, they learned about the possibilities of this infrastructure and observed some areas of joint collaboration. In this context, both parties have highly valued the development of the specialized training program for corvette operators and maintainers that they jointly develop.
The NTC is a strategic commitment of Navantia to have a reference center in the field of naval training. It will project the image of the company inside and outside of Spain, since it will allow the development of training programs and other training and outreach activities for the naval and defense industry. The center opens with the largest training program in the history of Navantia, destined to the endowments of corvettes for the Royal Saudi Navy, currently under construction at the Bay of Cádiz Shipyard.
Navantia is one of the associate members of SEA-EU and from their experience and their business weight they support and accompany SEA-EU in territorial development, always ready for collaborations that contribute to the common future of maritime marine excellence.
