Competence & Training

Competence development is a key factor in delivering efficient and reliable operations.

The “BB School” is a comprehensive training programme to develop and maintain specialized skills required onboard our fleet. The programme consists of the following

  • Ship manoeuvring in simulator for ASD tugs and regularly drills
  • BRM and communication.
  • BB’s onboard leadership programme.
  • Emergency preparedness and managing marine emergencies.
  • Safety management and HSE standards and systems based on our “Operational Procedure Handbook” developed to standardize all tug and pilot boat operations.
  • Training in HSE systems and procedures to develop a safety-first culture.
  • Best practice rigging and use of towing gear.

The competence development programme is arranged through our crew management department with contribution from internal resources and external partners.
