A visit for the students was arranged on 24th March 2017 on board the container ship “Ital Oriente” 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 GAC Shipping for arranging the visit, to the ship-owning company and to the crew for its great assistance.
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.
