ClassNK has signed a MOU (Memorandum of Understanding) with Maersk Training A/S regarding training for offshore wind farm operators and education for alternative fuel ship crews.

With the signing of the MOU, the two parties will cooperate towards enabling high-quality training which satisfies the international standards. They aim to target the labor force to be supplied to the offshore wind industry in Japan as well as in APAC region.


ClassNK will work with Maersk Training to develop a set of guidelines including the safety of boat transfer, which is one of the most frequent HSE risks across the offshore wind sector. Furthermore, research will be carried out on seafarer training for ammonia-fueled vessels jointly.


Maersk Training specializes in delivering training for the Oil and Gas, Renewables and Maritime industries. It is part of the A.P. Moller Maersk Group, a Danish shipping giant with over 100 years in ocean and inland freight transportation and associated services.

ClassNK has already been providing certification services to the maritime training sector. It plans to continue expanding its service to support skills increase for offshore wind farms and alternative fuel vessels.
