Visit to NTAR UK
Our Area Manager for the UK had the pleasure of Spencer Hufton (Siemens) showing her around at NTAR’s facilities in Northampton on her last trip. It was very informative and interesting for her to be introduced to their impressive state-of-the-art facility, and we are sure NTAR will play an important role in helping expand the talent pool and educating the workforce within the railway industry in the future.
We at Glova Rail are both happy and proud that we get to contribute to this program within the area of toilet testing and faultfinding, as NTAR's training will be carried out on one of Glova’s test benches. Our test bench with the LabControl software was developed for the train operators to carry out a thorough, standardized test on their toilets (regardless of brand) when maintaining them, but now it will also be used for training and educational purposes.
NTAR is a joint project between the National Skills Academy for Rail (NSAR), the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) and the Department for Transport (DfT), with industry partner Siemens – check it out here:http://ntar.co.uk/
