GE opens upgraded Marine Technical Training Center

Offshore staff

HOUSTON – When the Nautical Institute (NI) implemented new standards for dynamic positioning (DP) training early this year, GE decided to revamp its training capacities, going beyond the latest NI requirements. Today, GE Marine has opened its improved Dynamic Positioning Operator (DPO) Training, approved by the NI, in its Houston Marine Technical Training Center.

The upgraded GE facility meets Class A standards by providing a more realistic training environment – the state-of-the-art visualization system re-creates the view out of the ship navigation bridge.

The DP training room has complete maneuvering control and navigation systems. It is designed to operate with two generations of GE’s DP systems, where the instructors can rapidly change out between C-Series DP and GE’s latest SeaStream DP system.

In addition to DP qualifications, GE’s training center also provides trainings courses to marine engineering and bridge officers on a wide range of GE Marine systems.
