VPS and Seagull team up for fuel management training

Veritas Petroleum Services (VPS) and Seagull Maritime have signed a collaborative agreement to offer a range of fuel management training courses to the maritime industry.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The computer-based training package is currently being developed to provide e-learning options both on board and ashore.

“As the pioneer of fuel quality testing and analysis with more than three decades of global experience, we have noticed a pressing need for seafarers to fully understand fuel quality issues and learn how to handle such challenges. At the same time, we have also observed that ship crew are invariably short-handed and hard-pressed for time,” said Gerard Rohann, CEO of VPS.

”Hence, now more than ever before, such fuel-related knowledge and capabilities are increasingly becoming the keys to mitigating engine breakdowns and unplanned operational downtime.”

“We will give our clients a competitive edge by bringing carefully designed e-learning to their crew and staff, anywhere, anytime, and by leveraging technology and combining our unique competencies with those of Seagull Maritime.”

The first module of the training system will focus on fuel sampling, testing and bunkering, and is expected to be ready for the shipping industry by the middle of the year.{/mprestriction}
