Wärtsilä Land & Sea Academy, Subic Bay, Philippines Grand Opening

Monday, December 05, 2005
Wärtsilä Land & Sea Academy has taken a major leap in the development of its training services by opening the doors of a new training centre in Subic Bay in the Philippines on the 30 November 2005. The new training centre is one in a series of three training centres built for global coverage of training and competence management services in the marine and power plant industries.

Wärtsilä Land & Sea Academy (WLSA) is part of Wärtsilä Corporation's Service business and is currently planning to operate three Academies where a full scope of training is offered to all ship owners or power plant owners, in addition to six full-product training centres globally. A wide selection of WLSA services can also be accessed through 130 Wärtsilä locations.

WLSA scope of service extends from Wärtsilä product courses to the full range of customer specific maritime training courses in connection with competence and career management solution.

The new training centre in Subic Bay is equipped with five ship-handling simulator bridges, three engine room simulators, GMDSS simulators and cargo-handling simulators. All the simulators can be connected for full ship operation simulation.

An important new development has arisen with the growing LNG transportation market for which Wärtsilä Land & Sea Academy is playing a key role by providing training on gas engines as well as LNG cargo handling in the near future.
