A NAUTIS Full Mission Bridge Simulator was purchased and delivered to the Maritime Academy of Nigeria in Oron. The new simulator will be used to provide qualitative education and training for the merchant Navy and maritime industry in full accordance with international standards.

The Full Mission Bridge Simulator was delivered and installed by VSTEP at the Maritime Academy of Nigeria faculty in Oron. The DNV class B certified simulator includes a GMDSS and Radio Communications simulator and was installed with a 120° external field of view and NAUTIS Instructor station.

The Maritime Academy of Nigeria is a federally owned educational institute in Oron, Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria. It was established in 1979 to educate and train shipboard officers and shore-based management personnel. In 1988 the college's mandate was expanded to training all levels and categories of personnel for all facets of the Nigerian maritime industry. By the end of 2013, the academy has trained about 5,100 Nigerian Merchant Navy officers and more than 67,000 other workers in marine operations.

The Full Mission Bridge Simulator will allow the academy to expand its training curriculum with certified simulator training courses. The Maritime Academy of Nigeria instructors have received extensive simulator instructor and maintenance training from the VSTEP engineers, allowing them to operate the simulator and provide high quality FMB simulator training to academy students.
