Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. announced that the training ship Spirit of MOL has recently completed its final training voyage.

Since its first training voyage in 2007, more than 2,200 cadets from such countries as India, the Philippines and Russia have been trained aboard the ship. It also made important contributions to society through activities such as relief efforts after typhoon disasters, and received an award from House of Representatives of the Philippines, Lloyd’s List Safety at Sea International Awards 2008, and others.

Spirit of MOL was decommissioned by MOL Chairman Akimitsu Ashida at the Port of Manila, witnessed by Senior Managing Executive Officer Captain Soichi Hiratsuka, officers, crew, both past and present, and cadets. Eight bells, which mark completion of the last watch duty, were struck, and at the end of decommissioning ceremony, the company flag flown on the mast was lowered and returned Chairman Ashida.

Earlier, MOL launched a new training program called Cadet Actual Deployment for Education with Tutorial which takes over the spirit and know-how developed during the six years of training done on the Spirit of MOL.

The new program provides training opportunities aboard vessels that are actually in service and allows cadets, guided by specialist instructors, to acquire basic safety education and gain a thorough understanding of the company's guiding principles of safe operation.
