IMU Visakhapatnam likely to get two dredger simulators with Rs 20 crore – Times of India

VISAKHAPATNAM: Indian Maritime University-Visakhapatnam, Dredging Corporation of India, and Sagarmala are likely to float a particular objective car to set up two dredger simulators at IMU campus in Visakhapatnam. These simulators would value about Rs 20 crore. The IMU-Vizag and DCI entered into a proper memorandum of understanding with regard to coaching programmes and different mutual areas of curiosity.
Speaking to ToI, DCI MD and CEO Captain S Divakar defined how the DCI is bridging the coaching wants and gaps for the trade necessities and personnel. “The IMU is offering the required dredge familiarisation as well as advanced dredging courses for the trainees to meet the guidelines of the Directorate General of Shipping. We also intend to have a hydrographic survey course at IMU, which can help the DCI as well as the industry a lot,” mentioned Divakar.
The DCI MD added that there isn’t a specified course for cutter suction dredgers. “The IMU, DCI, and Sagarmala can have a SPV and can have these simulators to train the operators. The simulators will help fully realise the potential of inland waterways. We are discussing this with the ministry as well as the Inland Waterways Authority of India. Probably, we will be having these two simulators placed at IMU,” mentioned Divakar.
The DCI MD mentioned that IMU has rolled out a number of administration programmes within the maritime sector in recent times. “We have a long association with the IMU, which is going to be a pillar for the DCI,” mentioned Divakar.
