VSTEP won a contract to install FMB and Tug simulators at all three FIDENA Maritime Schools in Mexico. The contract was won by VSTEP and its Mexican partner Edutelsa through an official competitive tender procedure and enables FIDENA to replace its old simulator technology with DNV certified NAUTIS simulators.

FIDENA is the educational institution in charge of formal and comprehensive education of all seafarers in Mexico. It is the only institution in Mexico that offers higher level study programs in the maritime field and has wide international recognition. FIDENA has three nautical schools located in Mazatlan, Tampico and Veracruz and its Headquarters in Mexico City.

FIDENA purchased three NAUTIS DNV Class A Full Mission Bridge Simulators and three Tug Simulators for each of its nautical schools. The NAUTIS Certified DNV Class A Full Mission Bridge simulators have a 270° horizontal field of view and are fully compliant with the Class A DNV Standards for Certification No. 2.14 for Maritime Simulator Systems and IMO model courses 1.22 and 1.32. They address all new elements from the newly revised IMO STCW Convention and allows realistic training of a wide variety of training courses. The Tug Simulators are high performance desktop trainers with a 120-degrees horizontal outside field of view. The Vera Cruz, Altamira, Lazaro Cardenas and Manzanillo environments have been added to the simulators for training.

The simulators provide FIDENA students with the latest in advanced DNV certified maritime simulation technology for navigation and tug training. It allows FIDENA to meet the latest regulatory requirements and the ever increasing demand in training.

VSTEP will take care of installation and delivery of the simulators at the FIDENA schools in Mazatlan, Tampico and Vera Cruz. The NAUTIS Port Creation Tool was also purchased, to allow FIDENA to create their own simulator environments in addition to the extensive NAUTIS environment library.
