Transas Equips Estonian Maritime Academy Training Complex
Transas Marine installed a training complex for Estonian Maritime Academy in Tallinn. The contract was won through the competitive tender procedure. This extensive training facility is situated across three floors and includes more than 140 computers in configuration.
The simulation complex was established to meet the latest regulatory requirements and the growing demand in training. As a result of the project, the Estonian Maritime Academy increases its capacity in ship handling training with DNV Class A main bridge simulator with 270 degrees visualization; three secondary bridges with 120 degrees visualization each, all equipped with conventional and Azimuth controls. One of the secondary bridges will be used for DP operator training (DP class 2). ECDIS classroom with 10-trainees capacity will let the Academy conduct training in ECDIS operation in accordance with the latest STCW requirements.
A full mission Engine Room Simulator installed within the project enables training of crews for LCC tankers, Ro-Pax carriers, cruise and container vessels. The main advantage of the new simulator platform is easy reconfiguration, which makes it possible to change between different ship models in just few minutes.
Finally, the GMDSS class equipped with the TGS 5000 software from Transas will enable training to obtain a General Operator Certificate or Restricted Operator Certificate.
This project marks a successful continuation of the partnership between Transas and Estonian Maritime Academy throughout more than ten years.
Founded in 1919, Estonian Maritime Academy offers a high quality maritime education, accredited both domestically as well as internationally, to perform and coordinate the activities of maritime teaching and development as well as to organize applied and scientific maritime research.
