History 歷史

The Institute of Seatransport was found on 26th October 1984 by two lecturers at the Department of Maritime Studies of Hong Kong Polytechnic (now the HK Polytechnic University), namely, Captain L.C. Ngai and Captain Peter C.T. Chu, and a group of people in the shipping industry. The Institute incorporated as a limited company on 13th February 1986.

The aims of the Institute are to promote the exchange of professional knowledge within the HK shipping community, the recognition of professional seatransport for the community in HK and the contribution which it makes to our society.

Members come from different streams in the shipping industry, such as ship owners, marine insurers, ship brokers, maritime lawyers, average adjusters, maritime arbitrators, ship and cargo surveyors, ship builders/repairers, harbour pilots and senior seagoing personnel, for instance, ship masters, chief engineers etc.

 

1984年10月26日,在香港理工學院(現稱為香港理工大學)航海系任教的魏立志船長和朱志統船長及一班志同道合的海運界人士成立了海運學會。海運學會是一個以香港為中心,由各海運行業人士共同參與的團體。1986年2月13日,公司註冊署依據公司條例批準海運學會註冊成為有限公司。

 

海運學會的主要宗旨是為促進香港海運專業知識交流,提高社會各界對海運專業的認識及所作出的貢獻。

 

它的會員來自與海運有關的從業人士如船東、海事保險、船務經紀、海事法律、海損理算、海事仲裁、船舶及貨物檢驗、船舶工程、領港員及高級航海人員如船長、輪機長等。
