We are starting with Rope Access training in Egersund!

In January 2024, Energy Innovation is embarking on a new journey by starting Rope Access training in collaboration with IKM Solidtech.
By adding Rope Access training, Energy Innovation is strengthening the number one position in Norway for Safety Training for the Energy sector.

With a solid 17-year presence in the energy industry, IKM Solidtech brings practical expertise to the table. Specializing in operational inspection, rope access technology, and proficient crane & lifting operations, the company is well-equipped to contribute to our collaborative efforts.

Rope Access is relevant in various industries like Oil and Gas, Construction, and Renewable energy. Industrial rope access is a challenging profession where the safety level required to perform well cannot be achieved through theoretical knowledge alone.

Training and practical experience is crucial for the ability to assess situations and understand HSE. Therefore, SOFT (the Norwegian Cooperation body for Access Technology) have divided the education into several levels with requirements for the number of logged hours before admission to courses at the next level can begin. All industrial rope access assignments must have a safety supervisor in charge.

Our goal is to be ready to start in the end of January 2024. The course calendar will be available soon, providing opportunities for bookings.

A standout feature of Energy Innovation’s offering is a 30-meter training tower, providing participants with a realistic experience of working at heights, always with a focus on safety.

The tower, designed to mimic real working conditions, offers training opportunities both on its exterior and within confined spaces. Climbing the tower offers participants a challenging experience, culminating in a panoramic view from the top—an awe-inspiring reminder of the importance of mastering working at heights.

Guided by experienced staff, participants can expect practical training in top-class classrooms and a practice hall with training rigs.

The objective is to motivate participants to integrate SOFT Rope Access with other courses from our extensive portfolio, enhancing their overall learning experience.

Stay tuned for further updates as we finalize the course calendar, and we look forward to welcoming participants to a comprehensive and enriching educational journey in 2024. For inquiries and early expressions of interest, feel free to reach out.
