Safety and support at Tug Malta Ltd is not restricted to rendering marine services at sea. Recognising that people are one of its major anchors, the company also offers services in the fields of training and technical marine support services.
Training & Development Services
We provide training to tug crews to allow the company’s own seaborne personnel and third party tug masters, other mariners and engineers to experience and practice on the Company’s ASD and Voith Schneider tugs in real-life operations. Training covers tug handling, escorting tugs, bridge resource management and vessel handling in port and emergency situations.
In cooperation with the Malta Maritime Pilots Cooperative customers can also be provided with interactive simulator training as a foundation to hands-on experience.
