ECDIS Ltd has been touring the world with a series of seminars titled “ECDIS Inspections: Marine Risk Reduction, Detentions & Best Practice”. The latest, held at the London OCIMF headquarters, was well received with high praise from all attendees.
[Whiteley, Hampshire May 2016] The seminar was the biggest to date with representatives from some of the world’s top shipping companies and covered by the global press with readership well in excess of 150,000.
Numerous shipping companies attending including: BP Shipping, MOL Tankers Management, Columbia Shipmanagement, Cosco Maritime, Euroship Services, Global Marine Systems, Graig Ship Management, IHS Maritime and Trade, James Fisher Shipping Services, K Line LNG Shipping, NYK LNG Shipmanagement, PACC Ship, Pritchard-Gordon Tankers, Tanker Operator and Willhelmsen Lines Car Carriers.
The seminar titled “ECDIS Inspections: Marine Risk Reduction, Detentions & Best Practice” provides the delegates with practical, insightful knowledge of the best ways to prevent lengthy, costly port detentions; something which all global shipping companies want to avoid.
Feedback from the seminar has been exemplary:
“Informative, engaging and wonderful.” – NYK LNG Shipmanagement (UK) Ltd.
“Very well presented, highlighting the challenges that are still to be addressed with this system and by the people that actually use it.” – Cosco Maritime
“ Mark and Robyn’s relaxed approach fostered intelligent debating of the issues but they clearly knew the subject inside out… I did find the case studies (accidents, detentions) particularly interesting and came away with the impression that’s their still a great deal to be done to maximise the effectiveness of ECDIS as a navigation tool” . – IHS Maritime
“ I found the seminar of great benefit, both Mark Broster and Robyn Harrigan’s presentations and knowledge were excellent.” – Pritchard-Gordon Tankers Ltd
When asked, all attendees would highly recommend future seminars to friends or colleagues, and on the day of the seminar many people expressed great interest in attending a seminar with us again next year. Watch this space!
