Danaos Corporation purchased a NAUTIS DNV Class A FMB Simulator and Instructor Station for training of its fleet members.  The simulator will be delivered and installed by VSTEP at Danaos Shipping Co Ltd. Headquarters in Piraeus, Greece.  

The simulator purchased by Danaos Corporation included a NAUTIS DNV Class A FMB simulator with 240° horizontal field of view and an Instructor Station. It will be used to train navigation and maneuvering with the container vessels of the Danaos fleet. For this purpose, new container vessels were developed and added to the simulator in addition to the existing container vessels in the simulator ship library.

Joost van Ree, VSTEP Sales Director: “We are glad that one of the largest containership owners  in the world has joined the VSTEP simulator family. Our FMB simulator allows Danaos personnel to train effectively using the cutting edge of maritime simulation in line with the high performance standard the shipping company is known for.”

Danaos Corporation is an international owner of containerships, chartering vessels to many of the world's largest liner companies. With a fleet of 54 containerships, Danaos is among the largest containership charter owners in the world based on total TEU capacity. Danaos is one of the largest U.S. listed containership companies based on fleet size. Danaos is today domiciled in the Republic of the Marshall Islands, with operations conducted out of Greece.

VSTEP will deliver the Class A simulator at Danaos HQ in Piraeus in Q3 2014 and will provide simulator operator training for selected Danaos staff.
