Samsung’s pipeline and undersea welding trainees return home

[Businessday] 20 Nigerian youths trained at Samsung Heavy Industries, Geoje Shipyard, South Korea arrived at the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, lagos, Nigeria on Tuesday.

The youths who were trained in pipeline and undersea welding for one month, were awarded with the American Welding Society 3 filet Tag and 4 filet Tag certificates.

The programme exposed the Nigerians to highly advanced and automated production and maintenance facilities at the yard. They were introduced to the high standard health, safety, environment, quality assurances and control needed in the oil and gas sector.

It is expected that the trainees, using their acquired skills and experiences, would help Nigeria build capacity and extend local content in the oil and gas sector of the economy.

Speaking at the welcoming ceremony, Samsung Heavy Industries Nigeria Ltd, General Manager Frank Ejizu, said Samsung had through its sponsorship of the training, demonstrated its belief in the capacity building for Nigerians; which would lead to increased local content in the oil and gas industry in line with the vision of President Goodluck Jonathan’s transformation agenda for the industry.
