POSH to launch maritime training centre in Taiwan

POSH Kerry Renewables – a joint venture of PACC Offshore Services Holding (POSH) and Kerry TJ Logistics – has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) to develop Taiwan’s first specialised maritime training centre. 

POSH Kerry is teaming up with Metal Industries Research & Development Centre (MIRDC) for the project, which aims to build local expertise for both the onshore and offshore sectors. 

Maersk Training and DNV GL will also help develop the course. 

The training centre is scheduled for completion in 2020 and will be located within the vicinity of Shin Da Harbour in Kaohsiung.

Kelvin Teo, managing director of POSH Kerry, said: “We are excited to contribute towards the establishment of Taiwan's first specialised maritime training centre, especially in the area of dynamic position (DP) training. 

“In sharing our expertise and providing on-the-job training on board our large fleet of DP offshore vessels, POSH Kerry will do its part in cultivating a pipeline of local talent who can anchor the government's plans to advance its offshore renewable energy and marine industries.”
