Marlow and Kher­son mar­itime academy re­new train­ing co­op­er­a­tion in Ukraine

Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

Li­mas­sol-based Marlow Nav­i­ga­tion and Kher­son State Mar­itime Academy (KSMA) have re­newed their long­stand­ing mar­itime train­ing co­op­er­a­tion in Ukraine with a new agree­ment signed by Marlow Chair­man Her­mann Eden and the Rector of KSMA, Pro­fes­sor V.F. Kho­dakovsky dur­ing the in­au­gu­ra­tion cer­e­mony of the 2015 new marine cadets.

“Over the last eight years, we have built a solid foundation for ex­cel­lent col­lab­o­ra­tion. I am pleased to re­new our co­op­er­a­tion, and look to­wards ad­di­tional long term projects for up­grad­ing train­ing pro­grammes, and fa­cil­i­ties at the academy,” stated Eden.

“Th­ese will no doubt help firmly po­si­tion the Academy as the best mar­itime in­sti­tu­tion in Ukraine, and as a lead­ing in­ter­na­tional mar­itime cen­tre of ex­cel­lence,” he added.

As an industry part­ner to the Academy, Marlow Nav­i­ga­tion con­tin­ues to in­crease its in­take of Ukrainian cadets on board its fleet of man­aged ships as part of its ‘hands-on’ ap­proach in train­ing and de­vel­op­ing mar­itime of­fi­cers. At the same time, it is con­cen­trat­ing ef­forts in mod­ernising and en­rich­ing spe­cialised train­ing and ed­u­ca­tional fa­cil­i­ties at the academy, both in ship­ping and the off­shore sec­tor.

“Marlow Nav­i­ga­tion has be­come our re­li­able part­ner and an em­ployer for the plenty of our grad­u­ates, as well as suf­fi­cient in­vestor in the de­vel­op­ment of our ed­u­ca­tional and lab­o­ra­tory base,” com­mented Kho­dakovsky. “KSMA is listed among the best-known higher ed­u­ca­tional es­tab­lish­ments of our coun­try, ac­cord­ing to the In­sti­tute of In­no­va­tions and Tech­nol­ogy, and was recog­nised as the best among mar­itime ed­u­ca­tional es­tab­lish­ments of Ukraine,” he added.

To date, Ukraine is the largest provider of deck and en­gine of­fi­cers for Marlow Nav­i­ga­tion as the ship man­age­ment com­pany se­lects stu­dents to join its ranks af­ter their sec­ond study year as cadets. Th­ese stu­dents con­tinue their stud­ies in des­ig­nated Marlow classes and re­turn to the com­pany when they have grad­u­ated as of­fi­cers.

“Our role in the prepa­ra­tion of mar­itime spe­cial­ists is to as­sure the nec­es­sary sup­port for cadets, right from the very be­gin­ning, so that in good time they be­come marine of­fi­cers,” said Marlow’s Gen­eral Man­ager, Cap­tain Al­fred Von Der Hoeh in his ad­dress at the cer­e­mony.

“We are com­mit­ted to con­tinue do­ing our part for this mu­tual ben­e­fit, and also for the pro­mo­tion and as­sis­tance of Kher­son’s cadets – fu­ture Ukrainian marine of­fi­cers,” con­cluded Von Der Hoeh.
