Asia Maritime Pacific rolls out e-Learning

Asia-based dry bulk shipping company Asia Maritime Pacific (AMP) has agreed a deal with Seagull Maritime to roll out onboard e-Learning training systems across its fleet of more than 40 Handysize and minibulker vessels.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}AMP operates vessels of three types – minibulker and multipurpose vessels between 6,600dwt and 8,500dwt, small Handysize carriers from 18,900dwt up to 28,000dwt, as well as larger Handysize vessels of between 32,000dwt and 36,000dwt.

AMP’s fleetwide contract with Seagull covers the implementation of the Norwegian company’s library of e-Learning modules targeted at bulk carriers on these ships.

“Although ship operation costs will be increased a bit by implementing a new training system onboard, we strongly believe that the ship OpEx will decrease in the long run,” said Jian Ping Chen, technical director at AMP Shanghai.

“The goal with implementing training from Seagull Maritime is to improve the basic and professional skills for our crew, making sure service onboard our vessels will further improve. By continuously developing standards for operating the vessels with respect to practical and good seamanship, we anticipate that the quality of our crew will be even better, and thus minimising the human error within shipboard operation.”

“AMP also expect well trained crew will help to maintain our ship better than before and further decrease the safety risk/incident rate, and eventually decrease the ship’s operation cost.”{/mprestriction}
