At the end of May 2014, Batumi State Maritime Academy (BSMA) and Transas Marine Black Sea signed a contract for supply and installation of the Transas Full Mission Offshore simulator. The simulator complex will be one of the most advanced in the Black Sea region.

The full mission Transas offshore simulator with 270 degrees visualization is based on the Transas NTPRO 5000 software and will be used for training in dynamic positioning operations. The simulator will enable training of crews involved in transfer and supply of mobile offshore units. Training course will be accredited by the Nautical Institute.

Specially for the project, Transas will develop simulator areas for three ports of Georgia: Batumi, Poti and Kulevi. In addition, the simulator will use the next generation universal hardware solutions. Use of the touch screen technology together with the dedicated hardware, makes it possible to use virtually any controls on the bridge without compromising training realism.

The new Transas offshore simulator is an extension to the installed simulator complex in the Batumi State Maritime Academy; it will also get additional functionality to train crews in ice navigation operations.

The BSMA Vice-chancellor Irakly Sharabidze commented, “In few months we will have one of the most advanced dynamic positioning simulators which will contribute to the education of specialist in the offshore operations. Until now, in the Black Sea region this type of simulator was only available in Ukraine and Romania.”
