Wartsila hosts SUNY Maritime College training ship in Italy

Wärtsilä hosted the State University of New York Maritime College and its cadets aboard the college’s training ship during a recent visit to Trieste, Italy.

The students were part of the second term of the annual Summer Sea Team.

The ship, the Empire State VI, was welcomed to the Trieste harbor by Wärtsilä leaders, who gave a tour of the company’s workshop to more than 600 students, faculty and crew, including a contingent of cadets from the Maine and Texas maritime academies.

“Our visit in Trieste and tour of the Wärtsilä manufacturing facility was a unique opportunity for our students and faculty to experience, first-hand, the numerous elements involved in the production of a Wärtsilä engine. Equally as important, they saw the inner workings of a multi-national company with enormous impact,” SUNY Maritime College president Wendi B. Carpenter said in a statement.
