Montrose Port, a leading support and service hub for the energy industry, has broadened its services to the northeast energy industry by announcing its latest tenant, behavioral safety and culture change specialists Ethos Empowerment.

Ethos has invested six figures in a new facility at the port to deliver interactive emergency response training sessions. In addition, the company has launched its latest oil and gas process simulator, which is used for both emergency response and control room operator coaching.

The simulator has been designed to play a fundamental role in offshore emergency response training. Aimed at increasing safety for personnel involved in demanding offshore operations, Ethos’ technology will position individuals on a realistic offshore platform and put them through various, realistic emergency situations.

The partnership will enable Montrose Port Authority and Ethos to broaden the scope of safety training that can be delivered throughout the northeast and beyond.

Ethos’ services go beyond basic standard training; the team is focused on developing individuals’ current knowledge, fostering a directive form of leadership, which is imperative in any emergency situation. We’re delighted to welcome them to the port.”
