Transas to Install Navi-Trainers in China

Tuesday, June 29, 2004
The first project is for Zhoushan Navigational School/OOCL, which currently has a Navi-Trainer 3000 simulator purchased in 2001. Expansion of the school facilities includes a new building, which will house the new Navi-Trainer Professional 4000 to suit the growing training needs of the school’s cadets and senior deck officers from OOCL. The upgraded Navi-Trainer Professional 4000 comprises an additional two console workstations for the main bridge in the form of Bearing/CCTV and Navaids stations. Moreover, four VIS 4000 channels will be added to the existing three VIS 3000 channels, which will be upgraded to VIS 4000. The seven VIS 4000 channels will use cylindrical screens, with one VIS 4000 channel added to each of the two secondary bridges. Installation is scheduled in September 2004. The second contract offered to Transas is for Guangzhou Maritime College. The scope of supply of the Navi-Trainer Professional 4000 consists of the following modules: one main bridge, including five workstations comprising Conning with a full set of ship controls, ECDIS, Radar, NavAids and Bearing/CCTV, and seven VIS 4000 channels with cylindrical screens; and three secondary bridges, incorporating three workstations each comprising Conning, ECDIS and Radar. Each of the secondary bridges has three VIS 4000 channels, providing the simulated picture on the straight screens. The installation will take place in October 2004.
