Maritime Education (ME)ME has been established in late 2011 to group and focus HMC’s activities in education and knowledge sharing. Transport engineering experience that is gained in the other two business units for over 25 years is made available to the industry via courses in for instance transport engineering and warranty surveying. Regular education is also supported with cases, guest lectures and co-makership traineeships in close cooperation with local schools and universities. CONTACT

all educational activities performed by hmc are based on its internally developed course materials. these materials consist of a collection of presentations, assignments, books and working materials. besides these materials, hmc developed two bookwork’s: ´naval architecture for non-naval architects´ provides an introduction in naval architecture. the second bookwork is called ´notes for marine surveyors´. this bookwork teaches how a surveyor should examine plans, equipment, operations, and ships and learns how one should report and act on deficiencies. an index of the books’ topics is available upon request.
For schools and universities HMC offers guest lectures to give students a practical insight on problems encountered in the industry of heavy offshore transport. As we are committed to enhance and increase regular educational quality, HMC is happy to provide students with guest lectures and real-life cases. If you are a teacher at an educational organization and you wish to have a guest lecture on transport engineering, please contact us.

Transport engineering Shipping and towing
Transport Engineering Towage & Shipping (TESS) is about all technical aspects required to successfully and safely execute a variety of offshore transport operations. Amongst others, the main topics comprise of:
• Role of the transport engineer
• Introduction to naval engineering
• Hull strength
• Ship stability
•Maritime rules and regulations regarding safe offshore transport
•Engineering and calculation of maritime operations
Naval architect for non-naval architects
For non-technical staff who want to gain a better understanding of Naval Architecture and the shipbuilding industry.
• For technical professionals in other disciplines who want to work in the maritime industry.
• Those who regularly have contact with shipping companies, ship owners and shipyards will benefit from this course.
Naval Architecture for Non-naval Architects is all about learning and understanding the basic techniques and knowledge of naval architecture. The course enables you to be successful within the maritime industry. The main topics include :
• Ship and ship types
• Hull form of a ship
• Ship design
• Ship resistance and propulsion
• Ship constructions
• Ship motions & vibrations
• The yard processes
• General knowledge in naval architecture
Anchor handling requires special equipment and skills, not only in performance of the anchor handling operations, but also in preparing the projects.
• Establish the best operational practices and methodical approach to the development of new generation Anchor Handling Tugs
• Demonstrate positioning and station keeping
• Monitor stability during anchor handling (the interaction between the towline force, direction of the force, connection point and propulsion power)
• Accurately specific control of the loads on winch, stoppers, deck
• Understand environmental conditions and restrictions and learn how to determine the environmental restrictions
• Improve and understand safety and equipment handling
• Learn skills on deck and awareness (on the hazards) emergency and precaution measures
• Apply hydrographic and nautical equipment for heading control and water depth key issues for anchor handling and the consequence for the connections on the FPSO or GBS
• Rig moves of JU Rigs, Semi’s, FPSO’s and GBS
