Batumi, in the Autonomous Repuplic of Georgia, upgrades simulators at its nautical training facility.

The project included installation of a full mission engine room simulator ERS 5000 that simulates MAN B&W 6S50MC-C Diesel Engine Product Tanker Ship Model. The system is integrated with existing navigational simulator NTPRO 5000 and provides for joint training of engine room and bridge teams. The simulator replicates the operation of product tanker machinery, bridge and power systems which will enable BSMA to train marine technicians in realistic situations, without risk to people or vessels.

The main goals of establishing this advanced training facility is to educate qualified specialists who will join the maritime commercial fleet and maritime transport infrastructure; and provide a learning process that adheres to modern requirements and educational programs, which will help students to receive the knowledge and professional skills necessary for their profession.

Within the second part of the project, the Academy was equipped with ECDIS simulator class to meet the demand for ECDIS training. Transas ECDIS simulator has been designed in accordance with all related regulations. Thus, BSMA students will be able to receive mandatory generic ECDIS training as per STCW 2010.
 
This project is a continuation of Transas and Batumi State Maritime Academy partnership. In 2006, Transas supplied an integrated simulator compex to BSMA. The complex included Full Mission Navi-Trainer Professional 4000, Engine Room Simulator 4000, and Transas GMDSS simulator.
