Taipei: Leading classification society Det Norske Veritas (DNV) today inaugurated its new maritime academy in Taipei. The new academy is  the fifth in Greater China after those set up at Dalian, Hong Kong, Shanghai and Guangzhou.

DNV president and ceo Henrik Madsen said, "DNV has a tradition of providing training to our customers worldwide. I'm pleased to see DNV Region Greater China succeeds in this tradition and has formed a wide academy network."

The academy will run regular courses for ship owner technical staff, superintendants, designers and shipbuilders. It also offers a wide range of training courses including standard and customised programmes to meet customers' specific needs.

"DNV Academy Taiwan will focus on providing technological training and management support for shipowners, yards, designers and others," said newly appointed Taiwan District Manager James Wu, adding, "The Taiwan shipping cluster represents world-leading competency. As a leading class society in the district, we see it our responsibility to help the industry to excel in their business."
