As part of the project, Transas upgraded the existing navigational simulator to the latest NTPRO 5000 software, to ensure that training is in compliance with STCW 2010.
In addition, a DP tutor and a DP simulator class 2 were installed in the college, to meet 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 familiarisation courses.
The Transas DP simulator features a dedicated Instructor DP Panel for monitoring and introducing 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.
