COMPONENTS OF THE HUET FACILITY
The HUET Facility is designed based on the international standards & OPITO criterion for the personnel who regularly travel by helicopter to provide/ensure the skills and knowledge of what to do in an emergency situation where there is a need to exit a ditched helicopter and survive at sea.
For the purpose built, contemporary facility includes various distinct training capabilities to enable discrete trainings including the components:
- Helicopter Underwater Escape Trainer,
- Portable SWET chairs for Shallow Water Egress Training (SWET),
- Simulated Rescue Helicopter to enable rescue activity,
- Simulated Landing with Parachute.
REALISTIC TRAINING CAPABILITY
For the execution of realistic trainings the environmental conditions like weather, sea-state, day/night time, sound are simulated. The platforms for the simulation of rescue from helicopter, landing with parachute, and ship’s deck are providing a complete training capability.
REALISTIC CONDITIONS IAW INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS
The Trainer consists of a helicopter mock-up with movable exits/windows, that can be controlable ditched into the pool and able to rotate in both directions up to 180 degrees. The trainees are expected to exit from the ditched mock-up making use of Emergency Breathing System (EBS), and rescued from the helicopter’s cabin simulated platform above the pool.In the facility including the pool there are systems to simulate real environment like wave generator, daytime/night differentiation, wind and sea state effects.It provides required means for the OPITO certified trainings of the crew.
