NAUTIS Tug Trainer Simulator

VSTEP delivered a NAUTIS Tug Trainer Simulator at T.O.S (Transport & Offshore Services) headquarters in Rotterdam.

T.O.S. selected the NAUTIS Tug Trainer for its new ASD Training Program service. The NAUTIS Tug Trainer is a new generation of DNV certified Tug Handling Simulators, catering to the full range of maritime training goals in compliance with the latest STCW & IMO requirements.

The NAUTIS Tug simulator range includes affordable, high quality simulators to fit any budget, from Desktop Trainers to 360° Tug Simulators according to your training and certification requirements. T.O.S. will use a portable version of the NAUTIS Tug Trainer Simulator for its mobile training purposes.

The NAUTIS Tug Simulators allow captains to experience and train the handling of tugs with different propulsion systems during tug operations. Various types of tugs are available with different kinds of propulsion systems, ranging from conventional shaft propellers to ASD and tractor tugs. The NAUTIS Tug Trainer includes an easy to use set of instructor tools to prepare and control manoeuvring exercises, multi-tug operations and fine-tune ship manoeuvring parameters.

Ronald van der Kolk, Manager Division Nautical & Technical at T.O.S.: “The NAUTIS Tug simulator provides us with a high fidelity simulator for our ASD Training Program. We have selected the portable version of the NAUTIS Tug simulator because the simulator will guarantee high quality, realistic tug handling training for our customers at any location worldwide.”

Both VSTEP and T.O.S. will be demonstrating the portable version of the NAUTIS Tug  Trainer at the ITS 2012 in Barcelona from May 28th – June 1st . Visit the VSTEP stand 110 or the T.O.S. stand 129 at ITS 2012 for a firsthand demonstration.
