Damen Services Brisbane, the Queensland service hub for the international Damen Shipyards Group, has taken its seminar on the road.
Earlier this month, Sydney City Marine hosted a 1 day technical seminar on vessel automation systems.
Damen Services Brisbane has mobilized the complete automation simulator which was set up to compliment the training presentation. An expert trainer was able to deliver a theoretical and practical insight into the automation system installed on Damen vessels.
This 1-day version of the training package was delivered to Sydney based Damen vessel operators.
Topics covered included, the integration of systems, design aspects of the system and redundant networking. Feedback from the attendants was very positive, with many saying that the learnings will be beneficial in future operations, said Damen in its release.
Previously, the technical seminars have been held by Damen Services Brisbane in the HUB.
Earlier this year Damen, provided New Zealand customers with site based training onboard their own vessels. In discussion with Australian customers, it was recognized that a Sydney local seminar would be appealing to many operators who in the past have had difficulties traveling due to operational commitments.
The success of this seminar has led to another event to be planned in early 2018 in Sydney and other locations to follow.
