Sergey Paramashkin, Navis training officer, said: “The successful implementation marks a major step forward in China for maritime training programmes for future DP operators and watch-keeping officers alike, and the training course for the DP system will be made available to all students studying the purpose and functions of this kind of Vessel Motion Control system.”
“Installation and commissioning was a challenging task and involved input from a number of professional mariners.”
Founded in 1909, the Dalian Maritime University comes under the jurisdiction of China’s Ministry of Transport. It owns and operates two ocean-going training vessels, and its facilities include a full mission ship-handling simulator and an engine room simulator.
