Award winning model: That’s Modal!

By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 24 May 2018

MODAL Training director Hugh Callaway has told how the recent Humber Renewables Award is an endorsement of the “hard work and dedication” which has gone into establishing the state-of-the-art facility in the industry. 

Brought forward by Grimsby Institute Group with support of the Humber Local Enterprise Partnership, the £7 million investment won the Skills and Training accolade at the Grimsby Telegraph and Hull Daily Mail-hosted event.  

Later this week the next phase – geared towards road haulage – will open, following on from a suite of maritime and crane simulators on Middleplatt Road.

Mr Callaway said: “I am immensely proud that Modal was recognised by the industry. We’re a start-up business which has invested heavily in developing world-class training facilities  which deliver innovative solutions, including some of very best simulator suites, to regional, national and international businesses in the energy, offshore, maritime and ports and logistics sectors.

“This award acknowledges the hard work and dedication of the Modal team in ensuring our clients and partners improve their business performance through learning, development and skills acquisition.”

Grimsby Institute principal Gill Alton collected the accolade at the event, held at Hallmark Hotel North Ferriby.

Mr Callaway added: “At Modal Training we always strive to meet our clients’ needs using our range of bespoke courses and scenario training on our simulators and we would be delighted to share our vision for this type of training with like-minded businesses.”

The seventh annual event saw Orsted win Best Project for Race Bank offshore wind farm, with Binbrook’s MyEnergi taking the Innovation accolade for work on smart micro-generation solutions.

Immingham Renewable Fuels Terminal lead Sarah West was named Woman in Manufacturing and Engineering 2018, with Singleton Birch triumphant as Large Business, after first turning to green energy, then buying out the team behind the quarry’s anaerobic digestion  facility, and others built in the area.
