Goodwood Ship Management opens new seafarer training facility in Mumbai
Singapore-based Goodwood Ship Management has opened new seafarer training facility and office in Mumbai, India.

The new training center and office in Mumbai has been equipped with modern training simulation software and tools for Goodwood to further nurture its pool of seafarer talent.

“We are delighted that a MAN B&W ME Electronic Engine Simulator has been successfully installed in our new training center in Mumbai. This is the latest version of such simulator commissioned in India,” said Ashok Sabnis, managing director of Goodwood.

“The new training center is also equipped with a FURUNO NavSkills simulator which will be used for the type-specific trainings in FURUNO ECDIS FMD – 3100/3200/3300 in addition to existing facilities for JRC & Transas ECDIS Units. The Transas Full Mission Bridge simulator has also been upgraded to its latest version of NTPRO 5000 version 5.35.

“It offers a new mechanical interaction which will improve simulation in berthing, un-berthing and close quarter ship handling exercises as well as enhancing the training on situational awareness courses,” he shared.

Shailesh Shanbag, Mumbai-based training superintendent of Goodwood, said the ship management firm has also invested on enhancing fendering operations modelling to improve its ship to ship exercises.

“As for realistic grounding scenarios modelling, we are now in the progress of improving the whole modelling for a better grounding simulation. This new version will also provide a better overall graphical experience as compared to the previous version,” he said.
