New DP Training Centre

Wednesday, August 05, 2009

Aboa Mare University of Applied Sciences, located in Turku (Finland), has recently received the accreditation of the Nautical Institute as an official Dynamic Positioning (DP) training center. Dynamic positioning is becoming especially important for sophisticated offshore operations and the need for corresponding training facilities is increasing rapidly.

The new DP bridge simulator in Turku is based on the Navis NavDP 4000 Trainer Simulator, which combines the best qualities of the previous models. The DP training facility comprises the bridge with 3 visual channels and the DP classroom, where the trainees all have their individual DP station.

This new addition means that Aboa Mare now has no less than seven training bridges, turning it to the largest simulation center in Finland continuing its traditions dating back to 1813.
