Sinochem Shipping has just signed a long-term agreement with Seagull Maritime to deliver cost-effective and competence-increasing learning onboard its entire fleet of chemical tankers.

The company says it will allow it to effectively gain advantage in the chemical trade, with its fierce international competition.

“There has been a shortage of skilled officers and crew to the chemical tanker industry for some years now and we see that this investment in a quality training system from Seagull Maritime is just as much an investment in our most valued assets – our people,” said Zhang Xin, General Manager, Sinochem Shipping.

Sinochem will start with a selected library of e-learning modules and reflective learning films for its fleet, several of which will be delivered with Chinese translation and subtitles.

“It is a known fact that our focus on language translations over the past years will help us tie even stronger bonds in the Asian regions” said Mr Lim Soo Hock, Managing Director Seagull Maritime Information Technology, Singapore.

“The quality of our training and content is well known and even though English is the working language in the maritime industry, the use of local language will enforce the learning retention for all seafarers in our region.”

Sinochem and Seagull Maritime will work closely together in the coming years to develop further training content, assisting crew and officers in the chemical tanker segment to obtain and retain knowledge. This contract is not just about one party delivering a service to the other, but finding ways to collaborate and adding value for both parties.
