Transas to Outfit LTC With Simulator

Monday, September 20, 2004
Transas USA Inc., has been awarded the contract to supply a full mission offshore vessel simulator to the Louisiana Technical College, for installation at the Young Memorial Campus. The simulator is the first of its kind in the region that is specifically designed for the Offshore Industry.

To this end, the simulator bridge includes a flexible console and controls configuration to accurately recreate the bridge of a variety of offshore vessel types commonly operated in the Gulf. This includes both forward and aft bridge control positions, each with visualization, dynamic positioning systems (DPS2) and typical offshore/platform supply vessel engine and steering controls. The forward visuals cover a horizontal field of view of 180 degrees, while the three rear visuals offer an expanded vertical view, to best recreate the stern view of OSV deck and platform found in the offshore operating environment.

The full mission visual simulator builds upon the Transas ARPA/Radar simulator system, already implemented at Young Memorial earlier this year. As part of the forthcoming delivery, a connection will be provided between the ARPA/Radar and Offshore Vessel Simulators, for interactive exercise development, operation and debrief.

Carl Moore, Marine Department Coordinator, noted: “The whole team at Young Memorial is excited about the expansion of our program and course offerings, and we are happy that Transas USA is with us every step of the way! The comprehensive services, expert knowledge, and clearly superior modeling and software, provide us with a platform from which to launch a whole new set of courses for seafarers from the offshore sector”.

For over 40 years Louisiana Technical College, Young Memorial Campus, has enabled thousands of students to obtain Coast Guard licenses and documents. With a mission of Workforce Development, at Young Memorial students earn “An Education for Employment”.
