In October, the inauguration of the unique simulator Mooring Station was held at the Kherson State Maritime Academy (KSMA) and Kherson Maritime Specialised Training Centre (KMSTC) in the presence of Marlow Navigation’s Chairman Mr Hermann Eden, regional leaders and representatives of the media.
The Mooring station at Kherson State Maritime Academy (KSMA) is the first of its kind in Ukraine.
The hydraulically driven anchor-mooring winch is manufactured by MacGregor – Hatlapa and is donated by the International Maritime Employers Council (IMEC).
There is high demand for safe mooring training in the industry. Practical mooring operations is not actually taught at maritime colleges and academies, therefore this new mooring station is a great asset for KSMA and of benefit to Ukrainian seafarers.
