A group of more than twenty representatives from Destroyer Enterprise, including Thales Australia Engineers and Royal Australian Navy personnel from NUSHIP Sydney, were impressed by SAGE Group's Industry 4.0 training and manufacturing capabilities during a tour of the company's headquarters at Tonsley.
During the tour, hosted by Thales and SAGE, personnel trialled cutting-edge training platforms built by SAGE’s sister company Skills Lab RTO code 45486. The platforms are designed to teach key skills in the areas of programmable logic controllers (PLC’s) and instrumentation – the same systems operated by Marine Technicians on board the Hobart Class Destroyer.
