Transas has held a series of Simulation User Seminars in France. The events gathered more than 60 participants from maritime schools, pilot associations, navy and coast guard of the region.

To make the seminars more efficient and closer to the users, Transas said it decided to split them across two locations. The first two days took place in St-Nazaire at the SAR association SNSM (Société Nationale de Sauvetage en Mer) training center. The SNSM is a long-term Transas partner and its unique fast boat simulator in St-Nazaire provided a perfect venue to discuss various questions including ship modelling and particular requests of pilot and naval organizations. The simulator bridge mockup at St-Nazairewas designed in accordance with original ship drawings and is an exact replica of one of the SNSM latest 14-meter life boats (V1NG).

The other three days of the seminars took place at Transas Mediterranean premises in Valbonne during which Transas presented simulator development tools for pilots, naval applications and covered general simulation training aspects including new developments for the engine room and cargo handling simulators.

The participants provided extremely positive feedback about the seminars, as this was an exclusive opportunity to learn about new developments, future trends, and share professional knowledge and experience with their colleagues.
