Transas simulators bring Western Shipping training centre to a new level

Singapore. Transas Marine Pacific has successfully completed the upgrade of a simulator complex for Western Shipping Pte. Ltd. training centre.

The simulator class was upgraded to the latest version of the Transas navigational simulator NTPRO 5000 to fully support ECDIS training as per STCW 2010. In addition, a new full mission shiphandling simulator Class A was installed for advanced training capabilities. The Transas Full Mission Bridge Simulator is equipped with standard 8.4” panel touchscreen computers which can run various maneuvering controls and display layouts on a single panel according to the type of simulated ship model. Switching between models in runtime is also possible and will enhance the training experience for a wide range of basic and advanced training of professional mariners. Search and rescue functionality will ensure training in compliance with the IAMSAR requirements, while tug and mooring functionalities will provide excellent tools for both ship assistant training tasks and professional training in tug and barge operations.

The Full Mission Bridge Simulator is deemed as a stepping stone to the total ship concept implementation and  further integration to a full mission engine room and cargo handling simulators.
