The National Centre for Process & Manufacturing

Our new state-of-the-art facility, The National Centre for Process & Manufacturing, brings real world experience to our safety training provision. The National Centre for Process & Manufacturing gives us the ability to train and practice core Control Room, Process and Field Operations in a realistic work environment.

Our cutting-edge equipment and controls align directly with bulk liquid and gas storage industries both in the UK and internationally.

The NCPM has been delivered through a strategic partnership between Reynolds Training Services and CATCH. By bringing together the expertise of both safety training providers, we have created the UK’s first fully-operational tank farm and process plant training facility.

“We think the NCPM is the UK’s Leading Fully-Operational Tank Farm and Process Plant Training Facility.”

NCPM Departments and Facilities

At the NCPM, we offer advanced safety and technical training for careers across operations, maintenance, control & instrumentation, process and occupational safety, management and quality control. Our facilities provide real time operation, emulating the whole process life-cycle from raw material to finished product.

Within the NCPM, our safety instructors help businesses and learners build knowledge, skills and experience relevant to their site, industry and sector.

To do this, the NCPM offers four distinct – but interlinked – training environments: Our Tank Farm, the Process Building, the Operational Control Centre and our Simulator Suite.

TANK FARM

NCPM-Tank-Farm-Reynolds-Training

The NCPM’s Tank Farm consists of an impressive system of tanks, pumps and pipes, filters, meters and valves.

These have been designed and arranged to allow for transferring liquids internally and externally, reproducing the exchanges that happen in Process and Storage facilities worldwide.

PROCESS BUILDING

NCPM-the-process-building-reynolds-training

Our three-storey Process Building contains process storage vessels connected to the Tank Farm by pumps and pipelines that function exactly as in any process plant.

This extends our process operation across a range of technical areas, enhancing the learning and the development of real world skills.

CONTROL CENTRE

NCPM-Control-Centre-Using-the-DCS

The Operational Control Centre is the hub of operational control for process operations at the NCPM.

The suite of rooms is divided into three core areas: Operation Reception and Control, Switch Room & Control Room

This latter houses our two Distribution Control Systems (DCS).

HONEYWELL DCS

This provides control from the Tank Farm through to the Process Building, with clear graphical interfaces enabling operations personnel to undertake a range of complex routines.

Operations can be executed within the Control Room or transferred to the Simulator Suite.

EMERSON DELTA V

NCPM-Emerson-Logo

We have invested in a system that provides remote access to both Experion and Delta V, enabling us to bring elements of our knowledge to your site.

With this capability, we are able to remotely deliver hands-on experience for operational personnel before they attend practical training at the NCPM.

SIMULATOR SUITE

NCPM-Simulator-Room-Trainee-Operator

The Simulator Suite is a multifunction environment, providing replication of high hazard industrial operational processes and emergency response conditions.

Safety trainers can observe and assess decision-making and test learners’ operational and emergency responses, as situations develop in real time.

Safety is a Matter of Course

The NCPM enables Reynolds Training Services and our partners at CATCH to expand our safety training horizons, to bring the benefits of real world, hands-on experience in a state-of-the-art facility.

Our range of training courses is expansive, however it is not just about what we can do – but also how we can work with learners and employers to deliver the knowledge, skills and experience that will take your operational performance to the next level.
