Saatsea, now renamed as VIKING Saatsea, addresses the need of shipowners and operators to continuously train their crew by offering a combined solution that manages planning and implementation of onboard training as well as the documentation. One example is the requirement for annual onboard training of all Emergency Rescue and Recovery Vessel (ERRV) crew on vessels operating out of Denmark, Norway and the U.K. According to VIKING, it offers a system that manages both onboard training and documentation. The cloud-based mobile solution ensures that the system always works, even when the vessel is not on the internet. The information is synchronized automatically whenever the vessel has the opportunity to come online.
