Transas Class B and Class C DP simulators are to be installed at COSMOS NTC. They will expand the existing Transas Full Mission Bridge and the Mini Bridge Simulators.
Adding a DP2 station with MT controls will make it possible to use the Full Mission Bridge as a DP simulator Class B. The Mini Bridge Simulators will be extended with two DP1 stations for use as a DP simulator Class C.
Class C DP infrastructure is currently being commissioned, while integration and commissioning of the DP Class B arrangement will commence by the end of the month.
Transas says that accreditation by the Nautical Institute is expected soon, with the DP courses starting at the COSMOS Nautical Training Centre by the beginning of academic year 2013-2014.
