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 menoeuvring skills - the art of ship handling.

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.

Course description

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. 

Achievements

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

Case

Simulator training with Maersk Triple-E

We carry out ship simulator training for Maersk Triple-E container vessel crews. One of the main objectives of the course is to ensure that the participants understand the principles of manoeuvring with twin propellers and rudders, thereby promoting safety at sea and protecting the marine environment.
