BMT Designers & Planners (BMT), an operating company of BMT Group Ltd, an international design, engineering and risk management consultancy, has developed a unique 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.



BMT has many years’ experience of working in port environments and in particular, with different types of ship lifts, industrial facilities and on-going ship repair. The company is well placed to deliver this three week training program, which consists of three one week 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.  



PEs are being invited to find out more about the program and take advantage of BMT’s expertise and knowledge of changes to policy and procedure in the field – dandp.com. The modules are due to take place on the following dates:
•    Module 1: 12th – 16th August 2013 in Portsmouth, Virginia
•    Module 2: 19th – 23rd August 2013 in Portsmouth, Virginia
•    Module 3: October – exact dates to be confirmed
