Training ships of the merchant shipping
Training ships of the German Merchant Marine
In the commercial shipping vessels have school today only sporadically in use, because the “practical” seamanship is rarely needed in everyday life on board. The necessary practice aboard obtain prospective seafarers today by respective professions or training which are carried out usually on board merchant ships.
The first German merchant marine training ship was put into service in 1901, Grand Duchess Elizabeth, which was used intermittently until 1945 for training. It was later delivered to France and renamed Duchesse Anne, who now serves as a museum ship at. Another was the Grand Duke Friedrich August that had to be made after the First World and continues today as Statsraad Lehmkuhl.
In 1937, the Hapag the Admiral Karpfanger in service, however, already went missing on her first training trip at Cape Horn.
The famous German cargo carry eden sail training ships were the Windjammer Pamir and Passat. The Pamir was in 1957 in a storm in the North Atlantic below, and a few weeks later, the Passat was decommissioned.
The training ship Germany of merchant shipping was used until 2001 as a residential and training space for the Nautical School in Bremen. After it was no longer needed for this purpose, it may now be visited in Vegesack.
The last-propelled naval sail training ship of the German merchant shipping was the ketch Seute lass (not to be confused with the museum ship Seute lass in Bremerhaven). It was used from 1964 to 1967 by the German training ship Association and from 1967 to 1969 by the North German Lloyd for training rides. Since 1 January 1970 is for aspiring captains would no longer have to learn on a sailing ship. The Seute lass II is used since 1972 by the Association for DJS Clipper sailing trips especially with young fellow sailors.
Only the Fachhochschule Oldenburg / Ostfriesland / Wilhelmshaven took until 2007 per a training ship at the sites and blank Elsfleth: In Elsfleth it was the sail training ship Grand Duchess Elizabeth, in the empty training ship Aurora, a former buoy tender. Both ships also were trips within the maritime training. The part of the former Naval School in Grunendeich was used from 1986 to 1994, the Greundiek as a stationary training ship for the training of ship mechanics and machinists.
Since 2007, driving time will no longer be credited to the prescribed practical semesters at sea to traditional sailing from the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH). Thus, there is officially no place training of officers of the merchant marine sailing ships more.
N due to the lack of qualified seafarers are some German shipping company s now gone over ships specially equipped for training and to offer more placements on board. How can such Example, the Bremen-based Beluga Shipping, installed in some new buildings, an additional deck, eight aspiring sailors can be housed and trained on. A different approach, the Bremen company Harren & Partner, in September 2006, a training ship, the Hanse Explorer, put into service, this ship is more like a yacht, was built specifically for the training of personnel seemännischem.
Training ships of other navies trade
1921 was put into service by the Danish merchant navy the København. She went missing late 1928/Anfang 1929 on a voyage from Buenos Aires to Melbourne.
In many states, the sail training ships will also be adhered to in the civilian seafaring tradition. On most commerce powered by navies sail training vessels is possible, as sailors (trainee) to participate in trips for paying guests. So six almost identical training ships were built in the 1980s and 90s in the Gdansk Shipyard that are still in use today. These were the Dar Młodzieży (Poland), Mir, Nadezhda and Pallada (all Russia) and Khersones and Druzhba (both Ukraine). The most famous in Germany ships of the class are the Chersonese and Me, which take as sailors on board such As the Russian four-masted barque Sedov and de Krusenstern. The former cargo ship Savilco 1978-1984 was affiliated to the private “Pythagoras Maritime and Technical Schools”, used as a training ship in Piraeus, Greece.
Sail training vessels
Sail training ships are warships and merchant navies, but also of associations and organizations in driving held Sailing training for the maritime talent. It is either specifically designed for training purposes ships (eg As the Gorch Fock of the German navy) or converted to freighter (eg As the Krusenstern (ex Padua). In the German Empire of the German training ship, association maintained 1900-1944 five own sail training ships. Civil sail training ships were also mostly used until after thecargo trips.
Training ships in Inland Navigation
In the port city of Duisburg-Homberg is the training ship Rhine, are housed boarding default on the budding boatmen while they complete the theoretical training in vocational college Schiffer RHINE. The ship was built by the shipyard Meidericher 1984. Legally, the ship, together with declared “Rhein II” as a floating plant, but the ship still has a European number.
In the Netherlands, the budding boatmen are trained on the school-coupling Association maxima. In Belgium, on 4 May 2012, the school-axis group Province de Liège put into service. It consists of a motor vessel on which the accommodation and training rooms for 20 aspiring boatmen are and a tank barge on the practical training takes place. The axis group is 85 m long.
