The appointment of two new WinGD training partners will provide easier access to high quality training for ship operators and crews. WinGD has signed agreements with Giga Mare Inc. in the Philippines, and BlackSea Training in the Ukraine.

By partnering with these facilities in key global locations, WinGD extends its services offered to ship owners in support of its low-speed dual-fuel and diesel engines.

“The appointment of Giga Mare and Black Sea Training as official WinGD engine training partners is an important step in our plan to provide the highest level of training and support for operators of our engines on both a global and a local basis. With these key partnerships, we ensure that training programmes for engines developed by WinGD can be accessed where it is most convenient for the end users of our engines, reducing and in some cases eliminating the costs and hassle of travel,” said Rudolf Holtbecker, Operations Director for WinGD. 

With a deeper understanding of the main engine and its applied technologies, through comprehensive training, operators and supervisors of various levels are able to enhance the performance of the engine room by increasing its efficiency and reliability to reduce maintenance costs and lower emission levels.

“WinGD Training Partners are carefully chosen based on their ability to deliver the high-quality training our customers expect from WinGD,” continued Holtbecker. “This involves the capability to explain the theory and functionality of the dual-fuel X-DF, Generation X and RT-flex engines, as well as practicing real-life scenarios using our W-Xpert engine simulation software or the Full Mission Simulator hardware.” 

All training partners participate in WinGD’s 'Train-the-Trainer' programme and have full access to the WinGD training resources and simulation software developed by WinGD for use in Training Centres. The new Training Partnerships complement the existing training services offered by WinGD in Winterthur, Busan, Shanghai and Athens.
