Offshore Reception Facilities PDC
April 30, 2013 - 10:00am

A customized Professional Development Course (PDC) regarding offshore reception facilities was offered at WMU 15-19 April. The course was arranged by Obinna Okoro, President/CEO of Bridgetown Projects and included 8 participants from the Nigerian Maritime Administration and Safety Agency (NIMASA) and 1 participant from Bridgetown Projects. The aim was to increase knowledge of port reception facilities from offshore installations and to provide insight into marine pollution management. The program included a mix of classroom based lectures and information coupled with field visits. A trip was made on the Danish oil spill response vessel HDMS Gunnar Seidenfaden to the Copenhagen Malmö Port oil reception facility where a demonstration was made of their oil boom and skimmer system. Additional visits were made to the Danish Energy Agency, and to Force Technology, a leading company for simulators and construction modeling of ships and offshore installations.
