French Ship Owners Choose Transas

Monday, April 13, 2009

A new manoeuvring simulator for the French Ship Owners (CMA-CGM and SNCM) in cooperation with the Ecole de la Marine Marchande of Marseille will be supplied by Transas.

Two of the most important French ship owners, CMA-CGM and SNCM, signed a partnership with the Ecole de la Marine Marchande of Marseille (France) to purchase a manoeuvring simulator to help their captains improve their skills, and will be training all future officers in the same way.

Transas has been the ENMM Marseille simulation solutions provider for more than 10 years with different Navigational and GMDSS simulators. Transas won this contract in October 2008 relying on its expertise and current success with several French Pilot Associations (Le Havre, Dunkirk, SPSA-Atlantique), offering once again a customized simulation solution for manoeuvring.

The School and the Ship Owners specific needs were clearly identified. Transas offered a manoeuvring simulator with a 270° Visual system, specific bridge wing consoles for port manoeuvres, two bridge wing visualization systems in order to better anticipate berthing phases, and two stern visalization screens which completed the order. As soon as the NTPRO 4000 Manoeuvring simulator latest version is installed, TRANSAS customers will experience and take benefit of the latest progress in terms of development (new generation visuals, new radars, improved hydrodynamic effects, etc.)

Additionally, an advanced Instructor Workstation and three Trainee Mini Cabins will be included in this high level installation. An extension for two Mini Cabins and a second Instructor Workstation is also planned for the future development of the training complex.

With the latest generation of simulation technology, CMA-CGM and SNCM ship owners as well as the Ecole de la Marine Marchande de Marseille will be able to improve and optimize the performances of their future captains and officers.
