Exactly on the World Maritime Day, Siport21 has achieved the number of 1.400 seafarers trained in Siport21 Real-Time Ship Simulation Center. All of them have been involved in some of the Training Programs or in projects related to port facilities, new constructions or modifications.
In response to the concern related to maritime safety and improvement of Captains, Officers and Pilot’s quality training, the number of these activities has increased during the last years. These training courses provide seafarers with more confidence and knowledge in new maritime operations or in emergency scenarios.
Among the 1.400 seafarers, 1.000 are masters and chief officers from 51 national and international shipping companies, especially those related to LNG sector: GasLog, Exmar, Knutsen, Nakilat, BP Shipping, Teekay, VShips, NSQL, NYK LNG, Pronav, Shell, Alpha Gas, BG Group, Höegh, Golar, etc.
These programs are tailor made for the client and based on Siport21 methodology approved by DNV-GL. They include building databases of any port area around the world and ship models corresponding to the specific fleet of the shipping companies.
On the other hand, Pilots from 22 Spanish ports have attended in different port infrastructure projects -A Coruña, Algeciras, Barcelona, Bilbao, Castellon, Gijon, Tenerife, Sevilla y Valencia, among others- as well as from 31 international ports – Peru, Argentina, Mexico, Brazil, Portugal, Cuba, Colombia, Italy, Thailand, Turkey, Pakistan, Morocco, Jordan, Taiwan, Norway, Greece and Tunis-. In these projects, the Pilots have collaborated, with the technical team of Siport21, in the feasibility assessment of new infrastructures or upgrading of actual facilities. The access of new larger vessels or the management of new traffics, like dangerous goods, is the objective of other projects.
Finally, Tug Masters from several international companies (SAAM, Reyser, Svitzer, Tramarsa, Coltugs, Intertug, Coremar Goup and Spilbun) have been involved in different projects together with Pilots.
