To improve the overall performance of your compression equipment, an in-depth understanding of the equipment in question is imperative. As a consequence, Thomassen has developed several training courses targeted specifically at technical staff and operators of reciprocating as well as centrifugal compressors. Our courses, which focus on the compression equipment installed at your plant, can be held in-house - at our training facilities in Rheden, the Netherlands - or on-site, anywhere in the world. Our highly-trained and experienced instructors make sure your technical staff or operators acquire the knowledge they need to operate and maintain your valuable equipment safely and efficiently. They will also make every effort to meet any special requirements you may have. Details of our annual training programme are posted on our website (www.thomassen.com). Should you be interested, you can also enrol online.

To sum up, our maintenance contracts offer: • A win-win situation • A reduction in your TCoO • Transparent maintenance costs • Optimised maintenance • Flexibility • Higher level of customer expertise
