For training of Offshore Supply Vessel (OSV) activities within their fleet, Uniwise Offshore Thailand purchased a NAUTIS Offshore Supply Vessel Simulator and Instructor Station. The simulator was delivered and installed by VSTEP at the Uniwise Offshore training center in Songkhla.

Uniwise Offshore owns and operates the largest crew boat fleet in the Gulf of Thailand, supporting the Kingdom’s offshore oil and gas activities. The Songkhla training center plays a key part in the company strategy to develop, train and retain competent Thai crew. The Songkhla base houses the main technical center of excellence, with an engine maintenance facility essential for high crew boat up-time, a large warehouse for critical spares and mentioned training center, through which all crews must pass.

The NAUTIS OSV Desktop simulator and NAUTIS Instructor Station will be used at the premises for realistic training of OSV activities and navigation training with the vessels of their fleet. The simulator includes a range of specific Offshore Supply Vessels from the Uniwise fleet, optimizing the training value.

The NAUTIS OSV Desktop Trainers feature a high performance concept whereby a full 240-degrees horizontal outside field of view, which is normally only obtained in large Full Mission Bridge Simulators, is presented to the trainee at his desktop without any framerate or quality loss, and using just one high spec pc. Conventional current desktop trainers provide a much more limited view of 30-120 degrees, which is only useful for straight reverse platform approaches. The 240° large field of view of the NAUTIS OSV Desktop Trainers makes training of alongside maneuvers that require a perfect port or starboard view possible.

The NAUTIS OSV Desktop Trainer uses an actual azimuth control box, connected to the PC through USB. The entire set-up is compact and fits in any office or classroom environment.
