Unveiling the Future of Gas and Utility Training in Partnership with IGEM

12 May 2024     News

Develop is thrilled to announce a landmark event on Thursday 12th September 2024, at our York training centre, in partnership with IGEM. Join us as we showcase our best-in-class training facilities for the gas and utilities industry.

All visitors will have the opportunity to tour our training centre including our fully to-scale Joint Emergency Training Set (JETSET), a groundbreaking initiative developed in collaboration with Northern Gas Networks (NGN). This innovative facility, known as ‘Training Terrace,’ is designed to recreate real-life emergency response scenarios, allowing delegates to hone their practical skills in a controlled yet realistic environment.

The York centre also underwent a £500k refurbishment last year, including updates to two fixed-learning classrooms, a hybrid centre catering for alternative energies, two HV workshops and an LV workshop.

We have also recently refurbished the gas network training facilities and pressure control training area.
