Transas Supplies Full Mission Shiphandling Simulator To Croatia

Monday, February 05, 2001
Transas has supplied a full-mission bridge simulator, Navi-Trainer Professional 3000, to the training center of Split Ship Management, Croatia, to be officially opened on March 1, 2001. This will be the most advanced simulator training facility of its type in the country.

The focus of the new simulator will be the Main Bridge, which will be provided with seven visual channels permitting a 210-degree panoramic view. Other bridge equipment will consist of a maneuvering console with a conning display station and overhead panel; two ARPA/ radar stations; and an ECDIS (Electronic Chart Display and Information System) console. Also provided on the bridge will be a Chart Table with Navaids Instrument Station and a Communications Station with real GMDSS (Global Maritime Distress and Safety System) panels and telephone handsets.

The run of exercises will be monitored from a dedicated Instructor Station. The Instructor workplace consists of an Active Situation Display, Selective Radar Display and an Instructor's Communication Station. After the sailing exercise, its course can be played back and the results analysed in the Debriefing Room, where any moment of the exercise can be projected on a dedicated Large Screen Display.

John Hardcastle of Transas said on the functionality of the new simulator in Croatia: "This simulator will allow masters and navigation officers to familiarize themselves with dangerous areas and complicated port entries prior to taking control of an actual ship, thereby making a significant contribution to greater safety at sea."

This was the first business contact between Transas Marine, the UK-headquartered marine software and electronics company, and Split Ship Management from Croatia. Ratko Bozic, President of SSM, commented on the advantages of this cooperation: "Split Ship Management chose the Transas simulator for its detail and accuracy, which is an essential element in selling our services. Being able to take advantage of the Transas new leasing contract allowed us to open the center much faster than we had previously hoped and we are now actively looking at other simulator systems from Transas." SSM intends to further expand its simulator training facilities and has firm plans to link up the Bridge Simulator to a Transas Engine Room Simulator in the near future.
