    MOL branded class to be created in Admiral Makarov SUMIS

    Japanese shipping company Mitsui O.S.K. Lines (MOL group) and Admiral Makarov State University of Maritime and Inland Shipping (Admiral Makarov SUMIS) have reached an agreement to create a branded class at the University, intended for seafarers training and professional development, Admiral Makarov SUMIS says in a press release.

    The decision was made when the University’s rector, Professor Sergey Baryshnikov and MOL Managing Executive Officer, Kenta Matsuzaka signed a strategic cooperation agreement in June 2019 during the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum.

    «MOL is a long-term reliable partner of the University, – states Sergey Aysinov, Director of the Professional Development Programmes Institute of Admiral Makarov SUMIS. – Ship crews are trained in accordance with the requirements of the International Polar Code and the Rule V/4 of the STCW Convention. More than 100 deck and engine officers have been trained in Russia and Finland and more than 180 ratings have been trained at the MOL’s own training base in the Philippines with the involvement of our leading instructors – Captains and Ice Pilots with more than 20 years of experience in polar waters. The Company also provides training and employment for University cadets on Arctic gas carriers transporting Russian gas from Yamal».

    In the new class, cadets of the faculty of navigation and communication of the Maritime College of Admiral Makarov SUMIS would practice navigational laying and pass introductory instruction on the modern interactive demonstration equipment prior to navigation simulator training.

    Designed in the company’s corporate style, the new training class will be decorated with photos of MOL vessels and present milestones in the development of the shipping company from its foundation to the present day. The new auditorium will complement the laboratories of the Makarov Training Centre of the Professional Development Programmes Institute of Admiral Makarov SUMIS and will be located in the University’s reconstructed educational premises in St. Petersburg at 5 Zanevsky Prospekt.

     «With the objective of being one of the leading shipping companies in the Northern Sea Route operation, says Kenta Matsuzaka, MOL Managing Executive Officer, MOL identifies one key for its success as having seafarers especially well-trained for the Northern Sea Route operation. Currently, new projects in the Arctic are being developed and MOL is aiming to meet the increasing needs for safe transportation through the development of a specially trained crew pool with support from Admiral Makarov University. In the meantime, MOL continues to contribute to the development of the Russian maritime industry by recruiting promising seafarers from the younger generation. We highly appreciate the partnership with Admiral Makarov SUMIS, the leading Russian maritime university in the field of training of our personnel to work in the harsh ice conditions and we also hope that the opening of MOL branded class will help us to attract good specialists from the Russian graduates of this respected university to work onboard our vessels».

    Constantly updated educational and methodological base, expanding the range of distance courses, adding experienced specialists to the staff, as well as a flexible training schedule are the competitive advantages of the Makarov Training Centre, appreciated by many corporate and private customers. The new auditorium will be opened in autumn 2020.
