Technology: Transas Releases New Version of Engine Room Simulator

Thursday, November 13, 2003

Transas commercially launched the latest version of its Engine Room Simulator, ERS 4000. The new simulator is enhanced with a number of new significant capabilities aimed at satisfying the increasing demands of users of this kind of simulation product.

The modified ERS 4000 simulator features a modern design for the dedicated hardware set with new control panels, and some essential improvements have been made to the simulator's functionality.

One of these is the new configuration for the Electric Power Plant, which now includes Steam Turbo-generator and the updated Steam Plant. The accurate mathematical ship models incorporated in the simulator have been improved and extended by the new vessel types, Tanker LCC and Trawler. The modular structure of the ERS 4000 software allows the number of the high-quality models to easily be enlarged according to customer needs. The Instructor's module of the ERS 4000 simulator has been completely revised and enhanced with additional functionality, which makes the operation easier and more effective. The Trainee workstations have been given a more realistic and ship-like look.

Another major improvement implemented in this new version of simulator is the 'virtual reality' engine room. The innovative 3-D Engine Room module inserted in the ERS 4000 helps users to solve such training tasks as equipment familiarization, system mnemonic diagrams and local control positions, standard operation and advanced operation including troubleshooting.

The open architecture and modular design structure of the ERS 4000 simulator has allowed for its integration with the Navi-Trainer 4000 shiphandling simulator into a single interactive training environment, which opens more opportunities for different types of training, in particular for team-training.
