A visit for the ICS students was arranged on 9th March 2018 on board the container ship “TALOS” at Piraeus Container Terminal.
The students were taken on a tour of the vessel while members of the crew explained her main parts and equipment and their relevant functions. Everyone went around the bridge, the accommodation and engine room. It was a good insight into the reality of merchant ships in action.
Special thanks to the company COSTAMARE Inc., to the master and crew of the vessel for taking on tour of the vessel the ICS Students and explaining them her main parts, her equipment and their functions.
Last but not least, we would like to thank Mr Nikos Marmatsouris, Fellow Member of the Institute and Senior Marketing Manager of GAC Shipping S.A. for arranging the visit onboard.
Students were grateful to be given the opportunity to visit a vessel, the integral part of commercial shipping they have been long studying in theory, while preparing for the ICS Professional Qualifying Examinations, leading to ICS Membership.
