To be able to withstand the fierce competition in industry, it’s important to have well-trained specialist staff. It’s also important to train and professionally develop this specialist staff – especially when it comes to occupational safety.


This is also the case for Meyer Werft, Europe’s largest shipyard for cruise liners. Before the current COVID-19 pandemic hit, the shipyard had hired more staff and increased the number of shifts. New staff that had to be signed up quickly and instructed in occupational safety for the large output of the shipyard. Because this was supposed to happen as quickly as possible, the shipyard was in need of a fast and reliable solution at short notice.

A problem that ELA Container could solve with its mobile rooms. Just a week after the initial enquiry, a two-storey training centre was built on the Meyer Werft premises in which the new staff could be instructed in safety issues. Large, light rooms make it possible to concentrate on work on the 20 training computers. The registration office was incorporated into the facility with the help of flexible wall units.

Waiting area and reception of the training centre
Glass double doors and a waiting area offer the employees a welcoming and open reception area.

A week after the initial enquiry, a two-storey training centre made of nine ELA containers was built.

“We were happy that we got practical and convenient offices so quickly. This makes our work much easier,” says Irina Sinner, who works at the training centre in the registration office. The speed and quality convince customers of ELA Container again and again, shares ELA Area Sales Manager Ralf Neelen: “The Meyer Werft is a longstanding customer that opts for ELA time and again because of the standard of quality and short delivery times.”
