Marathon Petroleum Invests in River Safety with Maritime Simulator Donation

HUNTINGTON – Steering a river barge cannot be taught like driving a car or even flying a plane. There are no empty parking lots or open skies, and the Ohio River is hardly the place to suffer a beginner’s mistake with 1,200 feet of cargo in tow. Hence the importance of the computer simulator at Mountwest Community and Technical College’s Maritime Academy in Huntington, and a $30,000 donation by Marathon Petroleum to upgrade it.
