“K” Line has recently announced the completion of a new building named OCEAN BREEZE at their K Line Maritime Academy in Pasay City, Philippines. This new building has been built to further strengthen and expand the company’s seafarer’s training program.
The official opening on March 2nd was attended by several distinguished Philippine and Japanese dignitaries including maritime officials from overseas.
“K” Line began a program to develop their seafarers in the Philippines back in 1993 when It established the “K” Line Maritime Training Corporation (KMTC), which went on to become “KLMA Philippines” after the completion of their “K LINE BUILDING” in 2008.
The facility has the capacity to accept 10,000 trainees each year and is one of the key pillars in supporting “safe operations and environmental conservation” in accordance with their company ethos. The program continues to provide seafarers of the highest calibre.
The new OCEAN BREEZE building is eleven stories high that includes a dormitory that can house 225 trainees, a clinic equipped with state of the art medical equipment and office space on the very top floor. The building was constructed to satisfy the increasing demand for Filipino seafarers.
Further synergies with “K” Line will soon follow suit as other group companies will take up residence in the building, including, logistics companies, seafarer recruitment and manning companies, and marine agents as well as their own representative office.
