Transas to Provide Systems for PMI

Monday, February 03, 2003
The Pacific Maritime Institute (PMI) coast operation of the Maritime Institute of Technology and Graduate Studies (MITAG’s), has selected Transas Marine USA to provide the Navigational Simulation systems for their new simulation and training facility to be located in the heart of the Port of Seattle. The 15,000 square foot facility will include a new full mission ship simulator to DNV Class A standards with dual instructor stations, as well as secondary bridges for operating interactive exercises. Boasting a combination of the latest visual technologies, model databases, and a uniquely flexible design, the bridge simulator will provide a highly realistic training environment both inside and outside the wheelhouse. Gregg Trunnell, Director of PMI commented: “One of the main reasons why we selected Transas Marine was because of the wide spectrum of top quality simulation training products that they can provide. Transas simulation solutions are also particularly well suited to our training goals, for example the visual ship handling with tug interaction, electronic charting integrated with radar and AIS, vessel traffic systems, and spill response management training. With these tools PMI will be able to offer proficiency-based training to mariners at all stages of their profession, from courses required for license advancement endorsement and renewal, to complete training and education programs for prospective seafarers. PMI’s creative application of Transas Marine’s superior products will provide training options rivaling those offered anywhere in the country.” PMI’s simulator facility will be used to offer expanded courses to a wide range of maritime professions, including ships and towing officers, tankermen, pilots, the fishing industry, port security officers, vessel traffic control personnel, and many others. The new facility is expected to open in the summer of 2003.
