BARGE DAY | LAB DAY | PORT DAY
The three-day, all-inclusive BunkerExperience course presents an unbeatable combination of theory and real-life bunkering experience.
The morning classroom sessions are geared towards preparing students to make the most of the afternoon 'real life' experience of working on a bunker barge, working in a testing laboratory and 'going to sea' for close-up views of different types of ships.
- barge operations and sampling
- testing lab procedures
- onboard fuel handling
- ship type familiarisation
- fuel characteristics
- bunker quality
- mass flow meters
BUNKEREXPERIENCE is guaranteed to provide a rock solid intellectual and practical introduction into the three most important hands-on elements of the bunker business.
Due to the practical nature of this course, space is strictly limited so early registration is strongly recommended.
This all-inclusive programme includes:
three nights’ hotel accommodation
lunches, dinners and drinks
transportation to and from the ‘practical’ sites (barge, lab and 'tour du port')
The course offers a great social programme where students can compare their own bunkering experiences with their peers and draw on the vast experience of the course lecturers in a safe and properly socially-distanced environment.
Even for those who have been in the industry for many years, this course offers something really special.
In order to provide and safeguard the right attention, groups will not exceed 20 attendees
Each day will begin with theoretical lectures, covering the subjects of the day. These lectures do not exceed 3 hours!
WHO CAN ATTEND?
- Anyone involved in the bunker industry who hasn't had the opportunity to experience the "real life" of bunkering while on the job, regardless of how many years one has been in this business
- Anyone who would like to freshen-up their knowledge and/or real-life experience.
