Transas upgraded simulator facilities at the Romanian Nautical College. As a result, Romanian Nautical College will be the first commercial company to offer accredited DP training course in Romania.

Within the project, Transas upgraded the existing navigational simulator to the latest NTPRO 5000 software for training in full compliance with STCW 2010. In addition, a DP tutor and a DP simulator class 2 were installed in the college. The system meets the requirements of the Nautical Institute and corresponding DNV standard.

With this upgrade the college will be able to offer basic and advanced DP courses, DP refresher training and concept familiarization courses which are in demand with the growing role of offshore operations.

DP training focuses significantly on operational procedures for adverse events, which are complex and dangerous to train at sea. One of the important features of Transas DP simulator is a dedicated Instructor DP Panel for monitoring and introducing of faults to the DP related equipment. The instructor can introduce faults and errors for any equipment, including frozen pitch, poor GPS coverage, low UPS battery and even blackouts. All parameters are recorded in a log file for debriefing and playback which also may include audio and video recording of the trainees’ actions.
