WinGD has appointed two new training partners in a bid to provide easier access to high quality training for ship operators and crews.

By signing agreements with Giga Mare Inc in the Philippines and BlackSea Training in the Ukraine, WinGD extends their services offered to ship owners in support of their low-speed dual-fuel and diesel engines.

“The appointment of Giga Mare and Black Sea Training as official WinGD engine training partners is an important step in our plan to provide the highest level of training and support for operators of our engines on both a global and a local basis,” said Rudolf Holtbecker, operations director for WinGD.

“With these key partnerships, we ensure that training programmes for engines developed by WinGD can be accessed where it is most convenient for the end users of our engines, reducing and in some cases eliminating the costs and hassle of travel.”

Quality training

Mr Holtbecker said that high quality training is essential to ensure that ship operators can truly optimise their vessels’ performance.

“With a deeper understanding of the main engine and its applied technologies, through comprehensive training, operators and supervisors of various levels are able to enhance the performance of the engine room by increasing its efficiency and reliability to reduce maintenance costs and lower emission levels,” he said.

The new trainers will be given the capability to explain the theory and functionality of the dual-fuel X-DF, Generation X and RT-flex engines, as well as practicing real-life scenarios using WinGD’s W-Xpert engine simulation software or Full Mission Simulator hardware.
