An integrated full mission tug handling simulator, part task Navigation Cubicle Bridge, cargo handling, GMDSS and ECDIS simulators were supplied, which will add to the Full Mission Engine Room and Ship Handling Bridge simulators previously provided to the school by Transas.
“Indonesia, as a large marine country, needs the qualified seafarers; therefore it is crucial to provide proper educational and training centres with modern world-class facilities that fulfil the international maritime standards as ISO, IMO, SOLAS and STCW 2010,” said Capt Marihot Simanjuntak, head of the Merchant Marine School.
“We're proud to have Transas products in our school and we’re sure that its simulators should serve as appropriate instruments for other marine schools and academies in Indonesia.”
In related news, Transas has also launched a new ECDIS simulator, built on its Navi-Trainer Professional 5000 (NTPRO 5000) simulator platform which it says is fully compliant with the new STCW 2010 requirements.
The new simulator is based on the Navi-Sailor ECDIS Multifunction Display MFD 4000 with inbuilt Navi-Planner voyage planning software, and incorporates a Chart Delivery Server Emulator for chart delivery, chart updates and licence updates in automatic mode.
Among other new options are a generic area database, new training chart folios and weather forecast functionality.
The simulator operates in two configurations: Classroom/Lab Simulator and Mini Simulator.
The ECDIS Classroom/Lab simulator allows training to be conducted at a management level, including procurement management, licensing and updating of chart data and system software, and creating and maintaining system configuration, backup files and route plan files.
The configuration consists of an Instructor Station with instructor software, a Chart server and video logger/playback; Trainee workplaces with MFD master and backup stations, visual channel, conning and Navi-Planner; and a server with NTPRO software and Areas and Ship Models databases.
The ECDIS Mini simulator configuration is used to train in knowledge of navigation at the operational level, such as understanding of Electronic Navigational Chart (ENC) data, data accuracy, presentation rules, display options, and safe monitoring and adjustment of information.
This simulator is similarly set-up with an Instructor Station and server, as well as Trainee workplaces with ECDIS/ECS, Radar and Conning (plus a Video logger as an optional extra).
