Nautis OSV Simulator Delivered to Miclyn

Miclyn Express Offshore Singapore purchased a Nautis Offshore Supply Vessel Simulator and Instructor Station for training of OSV activities within the Miclyn fleet. The simulator was delivered and installed by VSTEP. Miclyn Express Offshore has followed up this initial purchase with an order for an identical simulator destined for their Joint Venture Thailand Training Facility.

The simulator deal for Miclyn Express Offshore (MEO) includes a 240-degree Nautis OSV Desktop Trainer and Nautis instructor station. The simulator will be used for realistic high quality training of OSV activities and navigation with the different vessels of the MEO fleet. For that purpose, specific MEO Offshore Supply Vessels have been added to the simulator for training.

The Nautis OSV Desktop Trainer features an innovative high performance concept whereby a full 240-degrees horizontal outside field of view is presented to the trainee. This field of view is normally only provided in bigger and more expensive Full Mission Bridge Simulators. The Nautis OSV Desktop Trainer however, manages this high performance field of view display using just one high-spec off-the-shelf PC without any framerate or quality loss.

This large field of view is needed for maneuvers whereby the OSV approaches an oil rig alongside, in which case the trainee needs to have a good view looking portside or starboard side. Conventional current desktop trainers provide a much more limited view of 30-120 degrees, which is only useful for straight reverse platform approaches. The azimuth controls for the NAUTIS OSV Desktop Trainer are provided in a desktop size control box, connected to the PC with a simple USB cable. The whole Nautis Desktop Trainer set-up is compact, fitting in any office environment.
