The Techsim 5000, DNV approved, Class A equipment will be used to train marine engineers both on operational and emergency procedures.
The simulator system combines real controls and Techsim 5000 touch screen technology. It can simulate multiple engine platforms (Diesel Electric, Slow Speed Diesel, Medium Speed Diesel, CODOG, etc).
Resolve Maritime Academy, a wholly owned subsidiary of Resolve Marine Group, mainly offers simulation training programmes for cruise operators, though its client list also includes companies in the tanker, bulker, and offshore sectors.
Dave Boldt, simulator group manager at the academy, said: “Having the ability to combine the engine and bridge simulators for integrated operation, both on the latest Transas platforms, gives Resolve Maritime Academy the ability to train vessel crews as a complete team.”
“This includes real world communication issues and realistic scenarios that involve the entire ship operation, plus considerations and decision-making problems that cannot be simulated without having the bridge and engine team working together.”
