UK, VTS Simulation from Transas

Wednesday, March 11, 2009

Transas Marine (UK) Ltd and Blackpool and the Fylde College’s Fleetwood Nautical Campus have successfully added a VTS simulation suite to its Transas Navi-Trainer Professional Simulation centre.

The two Navi-Monitor workstations are able to monitor the developing traffic situation in any simulated exercise run on the main navigational bridges on site; a capability that is required for Fleetwood to deliver VTS Operator training to the IALA V103 standard. A projected visualisation channel gives the view from the control tower and completes the ‘full mission’ effect that this leading training establishment has always strived for.

This installation is a landmark for Transas as it is the first of its kind in the UK; Fleetwood is now one of only two British nautical schools to offer MCA accredited VTS operator training.

Fleetwood Nautical Campus is part of Blackpool and the Fylde College. It is recognized as one of the top Nautical establishments in the UK, and is popular with students from around the world. The college has been designated as a National Beacon of Excellence and recently accredited for the Charter Mark in recognition of the excellent service it provides to all learners.
