Wilhelmsen Ships Service sponsors training academy
Jan. 14, 2010 - Wilhelmsen Ships Service is supporting the work of the Nautical Technical Training Academy (NTTA) by providing a range of the company's Unitor branded safety equipment including a brand new liferaft. The liferaft will be used in the academy's crew training facility to teach the Basic Safety course.
The NTTA, based in Groningen, Northern Holland, trains ships' crew in the use of safety appliances, to benefit them in their future careers.
The new liferaft is a welcome replacement for a tired second hand liferaft which has been extensively used for training over the last couple of years.
Aad den Bakker, Account Manager, Wilhelmsen Ships Service Holland, has been key to maintaining a long and successful relationship with NTTA. He comments "We were very pleased to be able to donate a new liferaft to the Academy for 2010. It will ensure that their training standards are maintained as up to date as possible. "
Wilhelmsen Ships Service has previously instructed the college to enable them to obtain the Flag State Audits Certificate (IVW), as well as partnering the Four Gasses test course that is offered.
The NTTA represents Wilhelmsen Ships Service in the northern part of Holland by offering training facilities at their location. The two organisations work closely together when organising symposiums, such as the EU prohibition of the use of virgin HCFC (R-22) refrigerants in 2010, and how to make a conversion to R-417A. This year the Academy will hold a symposium about homogenisers and bunker oils at their Groningen location. The support of Wilhelmsen Ships Service enables these symposiums to be offered to participants free of charge.
Wilhelmsen Ships Service supplies Unitor marine products, technical services, ships agency services and maritime logistics.
