Mariners train to avoid another Suez Canal jam on French lake

A pilot steers a scaled-down model of an ULCS container ship, named the Spirit of Port Revel, on a lake at the Port Revel Shiphandling Training Centre in Saint-Pierre-de-Bressieux, France, April 19, 2021. Located in the foothills of the Alps, the Port Revel facility is designed to replicate some of the trickiest spots in global shipping.

Francois Mayor, managing director of Port Revel, steers a scaled-down model of a tanker named the Brittany on a miniaturized stretch of the Suez Canal. This stretch of water was built to train ship captains and maritime pilots how to navigate the Suez Canal -- a skill now in the spotlight after the Ever Given cargo ship got wedged in the Egyptian waterway last month in high winds and a sandstorm.

Francois Mayor steers a scaled-down model of a tanker named the Brittany on a miniaturized stretch of the Suez Canal. The channel is built to one twenty-fifth the scale of a section of the real Suez Canal. Trainees have to steer through scale models of massive container ships without getting stuck. "It's a bit hard to recreate sandstorms," said Mayor. "But we have gusts of wind which will push our ship to one side or another."

Francois Mayor steers a scaled-down model of a tanker named the Brittany on a miniaturized stretch of the Suez Canal. During training on the mini-Suez canal, instructors simulate steering problems and engine outages to see how the trainees react. "You have little space to maneuver. You have to be particularly focussed," said Mayor.

Instructor Philippe Boulanger conducts a training course as a pilot steers a scaled-down model of an ULCS container ship, named the Spirit of Port Revel. There is also a mini-San Francisco Bay, and an imitation Port Arthur, Texas, for lessons on docking and maneuvering cruise ships and tankers in crowded ports. Under-water turbines replicate currents and waves.
