Transas Installs First Engine Room Simulator

Wednesday, September 04, 2002
In August 2002, Transas successfully commissioned its Engine Room Simulator at the Colombo International Nautical and Engineering College in Colombo, Sri Lanka. This is the first Transas simulator installed in this country. The ERS 2000 Version 5.4.2 supplied to the College comprises one instructor station and three interactive trainee workstations with full set of simulator’s modules. The installation was followed by a standard 3-days operational and instructor’s training course organized by Transas specialists. Transas Marine’s ERS 2000 is a PC-based networked simulator, which includes up to 12 interactive Trainee workstations operating under Instructor control and monitoring. The simulator can be used for both, individual and team training of marine engineers in the operation of Engine Room machinery and watch keeping in the Engine Control Room (ECR) of modern vessels with a high level of automation. The main components of the simulator include a Ship’s Diesel Propulsion Plant (for 2-stroke Diesel Engine – Fixed pitch propeller, and for 4-stroke Diesel Engine - Controllable Pitch Propeller); Ship’s Electric Power Plant and an Auxiliary Systems and Machinery simulator. The current Transas product line for Engine Room Simulators consists of the ERS 3000 with ECR ‘real’ control desks and cabinets; ERS 2000 with ‘on-screen’ controls; and the standalone desktop simulator, ERS Solo.
