Shetland Cadets To Receive Advanced Simulator Complex From Transas

Monday, December 17, 2001
Transas UK has won a competitive tender for the design, supply and installation of a new simulation complex at the North Atlantic Fisheries College, Scalloway, Shetland. According to this contract, in early 2002, Transas will replace the customer’s existing Norcontrol simulation facilities. The new complex will comprise a full mission bridge simulator, with 180 degree visual system, including two ARPA radars /ECDIS /conning and ship controls. In addition, the latest sophisticated Transas CCTV-type visual system used for berthing operations and providing the over-ship’s side view, is included in the scope of supply. Two other visual bridges will be supplied as parts of a fully interactive bridge training center. These additional bridges are designed to operate as separate vessels and, in particular, as tugs, for more complex specialised pilotage/tug operations training in conjunction with the main bridge. Special Voith Schneider tug controls will be implemented on these secondary bridges to enhance simulator realism.

The training capability within this advanced complex is further extended with the supply of Transas Engine Room and Liquid Cargo Handling simulators. Each bridge will also be equipped with the UK-approved simulated GMDSS training equipment from Transas. The college will be the first to install the redesigned Transas Oil Spill Simulator, which is the basis for the new Transas Crisis/Disaster Management simulation product range. Apart from the simulator equipment, Transas has also been contracted to create additional exercise areas, including the full pilotage area of Sullom Voe and the local harbours of Lerwick and Kirkwall on Orkney Island. Complex mathematical models of LNG carriers are being designed specifically for this order. The training tasks available with this advanced facility range from basic navigation skills to the most complex pilotage and tug operations. The North Atlantic Shetland Fisheries College has become the first school to benefit from the new advanced modeling techniques developed by Transas in cooperation with world’s leading ship modeling authorities, as well as from input of tidal information and dedicated control facilities incorporated in the simulator.
