"

President of the Group of Companies "Transas" Nikolai Lebedev added: "Opened Training Centre — a fine example of cooperation manufacturer of navigation equipment and training systems and the shipping company. As a result of joint efforts "Transas" and "SCF" was created-the-art educational complex with individual and often unique training solutions that best suit the requirements of the training of "SCF" and its partners. Many of the systems installed in the MTC, not only set new principles of training of personnel, but also anticipate future marine navigation instruments. "

SCF Group (GFR) — Russia’s largest shipping company, one of the world’s leading shipping companies in the field of maritime transport of hydrocarbons, as well as maintenance of the shelf exploration and production of oil and gas. Own and chartered fleet, specializing in the transportation of hydrocarbons from areas with difficult ice conditions, includes 156 vessels with a total deadweight of 12 million tons. One-third of them have a high ice class.
