A visit for the students was arranged on 1st March 2017 on board the multi-purpose vessel “MV Kasteelborg” at the port of Piraeus.
The students were taken on a tour of the vessel while members of the crew explained their main parts and equipment and their relevant functions. Everyone went around the cargo hatches, the bridge, the accommodation and engine room. It was a good insight into the reality of merchant ships in action.
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.
