Last month, Indonesia announced the launch of the Transas Fishing & Navigation Simulator Center in Semarang, central Java. The simulator operates within the Fishing Technology Development Center (BBPPI), part of the Republic of Indonesia’s Department of Marine Affairs and Fisheries.
The simulator comprises of the Transas Navi-Sailor ECDIS, Radar/ARPA, NavAids and the full fishing module, including Echo Sounder, Sonar and Net recorder complete with winch panel and lever control. In addition to under sea water visualization, the main visualization uses five circular projectors with Transas Seagull correction. It covers the Indonesian Exercise Area, including Dumai, Belawan, Surabaya, Jakarta, Arafura and its Semarang water area with detailed port visualization.
The city of Semarang is also currently running the installation of a Ship handling Simulator with the configuration of one main Bridge and two Trainee stations of radar/ARPA & ECDIS, at the Private Merchant Academy
(AKPELNI). The VTS installation in Semarang sees a total of three concurrent Transas projects in this major Indonesian port.
