Goals and objectives
The goal of the course is to improve the participants' knowledge and manoeuvring skills when handling megaships efficiently and safely in confined waters.
The course consists of a combination of theoretical lessons and practical simulator training. The core value of the course is transforming theoretical hydrodynamic knowledge into manoeuvring skills - the art of ship handling.
The program combines theoretical knowledge and relevant exercises in our full-mission simulator. The practical scenarios focus on port manoeuvres, sailing in narrow channels, ship-to-ship interaction and squat and bank effects.
After completion of the course, the participants will have increased their skills in:
- Manoeuvring strategy in confined waters for megaships
- Megaship handling in ports and restricted areas during different environmental conditions
- Understanding and coping properly with squat
- Understanding and coping properly with bank effect
- Understanding and coping properly with ship-to-ship interaction
- Standard ship handling theory
