A world-famous marine school is to play a key role in a European conference that promotes the latest training technologies in the maritime and offshore industries.

South Shields Marine School at South Tyneside College, will help to host and co-ordinate the three-day event by Kongsberg Maritime, a leading designer and maker of high-tech equipment for the maritime, oil and gas, and defence industries.

It will see around 160 delegates from dozens of simulation training centres and shipping firms across the Continent – and even some from Russia – descend on the North East in September to learn about the company’s latest advances.
