Greece Branch - Bulk carrier and container vessel visit in Piraeus

Posted on Wednesday, April 6, 2016

A visit for the students was arranged on board the bulk-carrier vessel "M/V ELINA B" as well as the container vessel "M/V Ovelix", at the port of Piraeus.


The students were taken on a tour of these vessels while members of their crew explained the main parts and equipment and their relevant functions.

Everyone went around the cargo hatches, the bridge, the accommodation and engine room. It was a good insight into the reality of merchant ships in action.

Students were grateful to be given the opportunity to visit a vessel, the integral part of commercial shipping they have been studying in theory, while preparing for the Institute Professional Qualifying Examinations, leading to Institute Membership, the only professional qualification that is internationally recognized as a mark of competence for shipping professionals.IMG_20160226_123607
