The head of the Suez Canal Authority Mohab Mamish has lauded the key role played by the Maritime Training and Simulation Centre in training SCA staff and developing scientific research.
In a statement released on Thursday, Mamish, also head of the Suez Canal Economic Zone, said that the SCA pays great attention to modernising the centre, with the aim of increasing the efficiency of the authority’s personnel and honing their skills.
He said that the centre was recognised as an advisory body by international shipping companies, given its key role in enriching the scientific research required for the mega projects being carried out along the canal, most notably the five floating bridges opened by President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi.
The bridges are meant to link the Suez Canal with the New Suez Canal.
The centre’s head Amr Fayez said the centre offered several training activities and SCA pilots’ courses.
