Transas Installs First VTMS Simulator in Russia

Wednesday, July 17, 2002
Transas Eurasia, Transas’ agent for Russia and CIS areas, has installed a VTMS training simulation complex at the Makarov State Maritime Academy (St. Petersburg, Russia). This is the first simulator of its kind installed in Russia, which guarantees the high level of VTMS training required to meet international navigation standards. The new VTMS training complex includes one instructor station, two specialised work places for VTMS operators, a full-scale navigation bridge with real control panels and 135-degree visualisation system, and a navigation bridge with one-channel visualisation. The VTMS simulator permits the use in the exercise of 48 ownship models and 43 sailing areas. All the simulated VTMS work-stations are based on the real VTMS software actually used by Transas in its VTS system projects, such as the large-scale VTS for the Gulf of Finland, VTS in the Port of Primorsk, Port of Tuapse and others. Training will be provided in the skills required by potential VTMS operators, from knowledge of local conditions and navigational regimes, to vessel traffic coordination and the role of pilot vessels in VTMS operations. Moreover, Transas has pioneered the integration of two simulators, its VTMS and navigational shiphandling full mission Navi-Trainer Professional 4000, in one training complex. Besides the combined functionality, this new integration solution permits the simultaneous training of 11 navigators and 4 pilots, and allows complex navigational tasks to be solved.
