Dutton’s Navigation Rig Moving and Ship Handling School

The only training center in the world using ride-on scale model simulations for tugs and tow vessels. The ships are 1/10 scale and designed to be weight to horsepower to size ratio correct. With boat handling instruction for Z-drives and conventional AHTS vessels, we give the Rig Mover a whole new understanding of the forces involved to accurately position a drilling rig under close tolerances with demanding training scenarios.
