Teekay, leader in the global marine energy industry, unveiled its hi-tech simulator in Finnieston, Glasgow, and aims to offer the latest training experience.

The company, which has been based in Glasgow for more than 25 years, believes the simulator will bring hundreds of seafarers from across the world to the city. They will attend courses in ship handling, navigation, bridge teamwork, ship-to-ship interactions, cargo operations, heavy traffic situations, and harsh weather conditions.
