Two Transas maritime simulators installed in Indonesia

(INDONESIA – MARCH, 2008) – Transas simulators have been installed in two Indonesian maritime education institutes; Merchant Marine School BP2IP Surabaya, and Rating School, Sorong, Papua.  Both institutions are part of the Indonesian Ministry of Transportation’s Education Training Agency.

The configuration of the simulator in BP2IP Surabaya is a Full Mission Ship Handling Simulator with visualization incorporating seven circular channels, integrated with GMDSS and 15 Trainee workstations.  In the Rating School Sorong, a Full Mission Ship Handling Simulator with five circular channel visualization is integrated with an Engine Room Simulator. Each are turnkey project solutions, said Aloys Sutarto, the Managing Director of PT MultiIntegra (Transas Group distributor in Indonesia), thus including in the contract the design, supply, installation, commissioning and training.

These projects maximize local knowledge, particularly regarding installation, civil work and the development of new Indonesian exercise areas.  “The combined ability of Transas and PT MultiIntegra to add local value is a main reason why we were awarded the contracts,” said Mr. Sutarto.
