the role of technical managers
development of new technology and associated crew training
the challenges faced by engineers onboard ship
how mechanical failures have led to large shipping casualties
the importance of learning lessons

The webinar will be moderated by Ansuman Ghosh, Director Risk Assessment, UK P&I Club, and feature Satya Prakash, Deputy General Manager (Technical), Laurel Ship Management Pte Ltd., and John Gibson, Director of Asia, Marine Engineer, Brookes Bell.

Stuart Edmonston, Loss Prevention Director at UK P&I Club, says: “Adapting to an environment where Covid-19 restrictions mean many events have been postponed or cancelled, our training webinars have helped marine professionals stay up to date and informed on evolving industry issues. We’re committed to providing opportunities to deepen collaborative knowledge and look forward to an insightful and thought provoking session exploring the critical issue of machinery failures.”
