Energy Sail 2018
September 22, 2018
In the course of the Energy Sail 2018 the sailing ship “Thalassa” moored up at Emden Dockyard on 21st September 2018. More than 30 representatives from University of Biberach were on board. As part of a ten-day excursion to the North Sea, the Energy Engineering course (Energy Systems and Building Climatology) also made a stopover at our shipyard during its journey. The trip includes a wide variety of projects, companies and facilities which were visited.
As usual, we maintained our close cooperation with the Emden-Leer University of Applied Sciences, Department of Maritime Sciences, and taught several skills of Emden Dockyard during an extensive shipyard tour. Major emphasis was placed on the concept of “green shipping”. Furthermore, current repair works on the customs cutter “Helgoland” (built in Emden) were inspected inside floating dock III, followed by a get-together with interesting conversations and feedback on the student’s impressions.
