Nosefo Tau

NOSEFO Tau is a large safety training centre outside of Stavanger that offers excellent training facilities and highly realistic courses.

Our advanced fire training area provides a unique opportunity to train under realistic conditions and where one of the training objects is fire-fighting with gas under pressure.

We offer a number of theoretical and practical safety and emergency training courses, such as basic offshore safety and emergency training, search and rescue team, HLO, GES freefall lifeboat, conventional lifeboat, FRC/MOB, gas under pressure, first aid, defibrillator, on-scene command and smoke-diving.

Our rig, the North-East Frigg, is located by the water. We received this rig from the Frigg field in 1996. The rig includes a helicopter deck, living quarters, control room, and cellar deck is therefore a multipurpose training facility for fire drills, water survival, first and HLO training. The North-East Frigg is particularly well-suited for training for all of the emergency control team.
