6 new U.S Ships for Viking Cruises

Plans call for the construction of six new vessels over the next three years at an estimated cost of $90 million to $100 million per vessel, all of which will be built in U.S. shipyards and crewed by U.S. citizens. 

The vessels will be owned by Tennenbaum Capital Partners, a Los Angeles-based alternative investment management firm, and time-chartered to Viking in full compliance with maritime laws. Viking River Cruises customers, traveling to New Orleans from across the U.S., Europe and beyond, will bring new business to hotels, restaurants, museums and other attractions in the city, expanding sales for local merchants. More than 90 percent of sales created by the project will come from out-of-state customers.

 

NMCI Services release new course

NMCI Services will run a High Voltage (Management) course in the coming weeks.

As the High Voltage (Management) course is a commercial course, it is available to book online at the following link: High Voltage (M). Once you have registered and paid online you will appear on the course participants list. Unfortunately, we cannot accept provisional course booking requests as there are limited places available. The course cost is €1,200 per delegate.

This course is suitable for marine engineering officers, electrical or electro-technical officers, engineer surveyors and marine superintendents. The training gives seafarers the essential education and training in high voltage (HV) installations to meet the Knowledge, Understanding and Proficiency requirements as set out in STCW 2010 Tables A-III/2 and A-III/6 for electrical, electronic and control systems at the management level.
