SeaRoc Group is pleased to announce the successful completion of the first specialist Marine Coordination training for Japanese personnel.

Two members of the Hokutaku team attended an intensive 5 days course, split between SMC’s Hunmanby training centre and SeaRoc’s offices in Chichester, making them the first trained Marine Coordinators in Japan.

The team were given a solid grounding in the techniques and practices of Marine Coordination along with detailed training on the market leading SeaPlanner Marine Management System.

“The offshore wind market in Japan is poised to enter a new phase of project construction”, says Steve Pears, Managing Director at SeaRoc Group. “We are pleased that Hokutaku are taking the proactive step to prepare their trained turbine maintenance teams to enter this new phase and support offshore operations in wind farm construction. As new markets emerge in large scale offshore wind construction emerge – from the US to France to Asia – it is essential that local personnel are fully trained to manage safe and effective offshore operations.”

This international initiative is the first in a series of courses planned under the management of SeaRoc’s Consultancy team, a topic that Neil Pittam, SeaRoc’s Head of Consultancy, will cover in a series of seminars in Asia being conducted in the week of 17th September in conjunction with Tokyo Marine Insurance and Class NK.
