SMA installs ECDIS training systems

Kelvin Hughes has supplied Singapore’s largest maritime training institution, the Singapore Maritime Academy (SMA), with 25 ECDIS training systems under a new contract.

The 25 MantaDigital ECDIS Training Systems will be incorporated with Chartco’s Passage Manager, providing SMA with one of only three training centres approved for generic ECDIS training by the Singapore Maritime Port Authority.

SMA recently updated its facilities, opening a new training laboratory at the end of August last year.

“We are committed to ensuring that our simulators are always updated, so that our graduates always meet the exacting standards of IMO and industry,” says Captain Gopala Krishnan, SMA’s senior manager, SMART Center and maritime simulation division.

The ECDIS training system is ‘student-proof’, in that it doesn't allow access to the main operating system or changes of parameters, and can connect to a vessel simulator for expanded training options.

Kelvin Hughes has upgraded SMA’s existing ECDIS master station with simulation software to output vessel movements to the individual ECDIS workstations.
