    Program sponsors several awards that are given annually to each federal service academy to recognize excellence in energy conservation and sustainability The winners are chosen based on their innovation and potential impact related to the individual Academy s mission The United States Merchant Marine Academy USMMA is the first Academy to receive one of these awards I believe it is significant that we are the first Academy to qualify for one of the Department of Energy s Excellence in Energy Awards Especially considering the effort that is now underway in our industry to increase vessel fuel efficiency and reduce airborne emissions The energy conservation and sustainability efforts recognized by this award are directly related to our mission said Captain William Sembler Ph D P E Professor and Head of the Department of Marine Engineering In his report Hoffman evaluated the use of solar panels to provide shore power to the new T V Kings Pointer He conducted research using the photovoltaic systems installed on the solar hydrogen home located at the USMMA This research platform was originally developed by the New York Institute of Technology NYIT in collaboration with USMMA for the Department of Energy s 2005 Solar Decathlon Competition in Washington DC Using data collected from instrumentation installed in the solar hydrogen home Hoffman conducted a study to evaluate the practicality of installing solar panels onboard the USMMA training vessel T V Kings Pointer ex M V Liberty Star to supply renewable electrical power to the vessel while in port In addition the feasibility of a pier side solar panel system that would supply the T V Kings Pointer with shore power during periods when the vessel is at the dock was also evaluated The selection was made earlier this week by Captain David Palmer and Captain Brian Ackerman

  • USMMA Receives USCG Approval for Cadet Deck and Engine Programs through July 2018 | U.S. Merchant Marine Academy
    USMMA whose mission is to educate and graduate licensed merchant mariners and leaders of exemplary character who will serve America s marine transportation and defense needs in peace and war The daunting task began almost three years ago as follow up to the Academy s baseline review of its academic offerings While the enormity of the task and its voluminous nature alone would pose its own challenges they became even more formidable because of the continually evolving interpretations of the new international standards of mariner training certification and watch keeping The Academy mariner educators participated in various conferences and meetings with the USCG and other subject matter experts to gain insight into how the new regulations commonly referred to as the 2010 Manila Amendments can be best integrated within an accredited four year baccalaureate degree program They frequently sought guidance on how the as yet unpublished USCG regulations may affect USMMA s previously approved programs In essence the USMMA faculty assisted in the development of a globally approved mariner licensing program without knowing the applicable final rules and regulations and operating under frequently changing interpretations and guidelines A testimony to the true value of this pioneering effort by Academy faculty is the request from other institutions to share USMMA s interpretations with them Thanks to all of you for your hard work and leadership said Rear Admiral James Helis Ph D superintendent of the U S Merchant Marine Academy I want to especially congratulate the Dean and our outstanding Marine Transportation and Marine Engineering Faculty Their ability to adapt and rapidly change course when necessary is what made this approval possible and has ensured the Academy is ready for the class of 2017 This was totally a team effort from all involved in teaching the STCW courses the STCW coordinators
