Jeppesen agreement with Russian Academy

  • Friday, 02 November 2007 | News

Jeppesen Marine has signed an agreement with the Admiral Makarov State Maritime Academy in St. Petersburg, Russia to co-operate on scientific research and training of cadets.

The strategic collaboration was signed on the 131st anniversary of the school's founding, and will initially last three years.

According to the agreement, Jeppesen and the Academy will undertake joint research in the development of mathematical models of ships, carry out joint conferences, conduct independent evaluation of navigational information and designs and jointly develop distance-learning educational programs on nautical astronomy and navigation using electronic charts.

"The long-term value of ensuring that the next generation of Russian officers is trained on and fluent with our products is tremendous, particularly considering the mounting officer shortage," said Tor Svanes, director, Jeppesen Norway.

The Admiral Makarov State Maritime Academy, founded in St. Petersburg in 1886, has 2500 students.
