Wärtsilä Voyage shake hands with technology solutions provider Ocean Technologies Group (OTG) in an effort to deliver transformational learning solutions and improve safety and efficiency at sea.
Under their agreement, Wärtsilä Voyage and OTG will provide industry stakeholders the opportunity to be connected on a single end-to-end learning journey, combining on-demand digital training and assessment, virtual and simulation events via cloud-based solutions, and in-person learning experiences at maritime training centres or aboard ship.
“By leveraging our combined smart learning technologies and mariner performance optimisation services, industry can achieve the desired outcome of operating with more efficient, safer, and environmentally aware mariners who are properly equipped to perform in a rapidly changing, digitised maritime industry.”
… said Sean Fernback, President, Wärtsilä Voyage.
What is more, the partnership makes Wärtsilä Voyage’s Cloud Simulation services and training catalogue available through OTG’s recently announced and significantly enhanced Ocean Learning Platform.
As explained, the combined customer pool of over three thousand shipping companies and training centers, plus well over a million seafarers, will be able to access Wärtsilä training, assessment, and certification on an ‘on-demand’ basis, any time, and from anywhere in the world.
“Our objective is to equip seafarers and users, with the most relevant knowledge and resources, not only in a training centre, but also online and at point of operation onboard ships and other sites. Our partnership with Wärtsilä makes ‘on-demand’ access to cloud simulation and type-specific training and technical resources available to seafarers and shore-based personnel, helping them gain proficiency in safely and efficiently operating sophisticated Wärtsilä equipment”.
….said Manish Singh, Ocean Technology Group’s CEO.
