The bridge simulator (Transas NT-PRO 5000 5.25), engine room simulator (Transas Techsim 5000 8.3) and liquid cargo handling simulator (Transas LCHS 5000), will be used to train officers across a variety of vessels.

Captain Fared Khan, Wallem’s fleet personnel director, spoke at the launch about how seafarers will benefit from the simulators through development of their maritime knowledge and skills. 

“Nothing is better than hands on training when evaluating capability for making ships safer for everyone onboard,” he said.

“The state-of-the-art Transas simulators will assist us to not only refine the officers’ skills leading to operational excellence onboard, but also to train our sea  staff in how best to respond to different non-routine, challenging and critical situations at sea and in port.”

“Integrating previous incidents and lessons learnt will ensure the same mistakes are never repeated in the fleet.”

Wallem Ship management operates eight training centres around the world, with Odessa currently offering 18 different courses to improve skills and safety. According to Wallem Europe crew manager Wiebke Schuett, hundreds of seafarer will benefit from the new simulators.

“The Wallem Maritime Training Centres in Odessa trains not only Ukrainian officers, but also officers from other Eastern European countries including Russia, Romania, Serbia and Croatia,” she said.

“We currently have about 250 officers from the region on board Wallem-managed vessels, and a pool of 700 officers.”
