SPMS partner Hamburg Süd donated several coils of steel wire during a crew change off Tarawa. Malte Pertiet, MTC Captain Superintendent, expresses his gratitude to the donators:

“Thanks to the generous donation of of steel wire, landed by Santa Vessels during their crew change, the MTC Tarawa could repair its derricks. Even though the derricks and a McGregor rope-pull operated hatch cover are regarded as old style, it stills gives students the opportunity to learn safe working procedures. Furthermore the students gain a better understanding of the effect of forces and levers, transmitted by wires.”
