Monday, February 11, 2013

Det Norske Veritas (Norway) issued statement of compliance for the Transas navigational and DP simulators. As a result, the Transas Navi-Trainer Professional 5000 holds the most advanced certificates set in the maritime simulator industry.

Transas has been certified as a Bridge Operation Simulator Class A with class notation "Integrated simulator system, NAUT AW (SIM), DYNPOS – AUT (SIM), HSC, TUG, ICE, AHTS" and Dynamic Positioning Simulator Class A as per the latest edition of Standard for Certification of Maritime Simulators No. 2.14 January 2011.

Transas is the first manufacturer to acquire DNV approval of an anchor-handling operations module according to the latest standard. This standard is based on the requirements of the STCW convention which was significantly amended in 2010 (Manila amendments).  

It's now officially confirmed that Transas NTPRO meets both basic standard requirements for Bridge Operation simulation system (Section 3) and:
