Port Engineers Attend BMT’s Fit for Purpose Training

BMT Designers & Planners, Inc. (BMT), an operating company of BMT Group Ltd,  has delivered its training program to assist Port Engineers (PEs) with maximizing investments in the repair and sustainment of their maritime assets.

With the complex management of ship repair constantly changing, PEs are tasked with understanding many challenging requirements.

These include surface preparation and preservation, dry-dock evolutions and safety, propulsion system alignment, welding processes and procedures, non-destructive testing, inspections, general shipyard safety and more.

The company has delivered this three week training program, which consists of three one week, stand-alone modules and is the first of its kind to cover a range of tailored subjects to support operator, engineering, contracting and shipyard organisations.

The course looks at everything from the preparation for a maintenance period, engineering administration, to the fundamentals of project management and beyond.

Paul Virgintino from Vane Line Bunkering Inc., and a course delegate, said: “I would recommend this training for all Port Engineers and anyone involved in maintenance planning. Practical exercises reinforced concepts of training and the training instructors were expert in topics taught and encouraged student participation.”

BMT Designers & Planners (D&P) has been providing technical and managerial consultancy services to government agencies and commercial clients since 1953.

D&P specializes in Ship Acquisition & Engineering, Advanced & Strategic Technologies, and Risk & Environmental consulting.
