The Rotterdam-based developer says that, together with its US partner Annapolis Simulation, it is installing the simulator in the school’s campus in Bayou La Batre, near Mobile.
The DNV certified NAUTIS Full Mission Bridge Simulator features a 180° external view angle, which exceeds the minimum 120° exterior view angle required for DNV Class B simulators. It allows for training in Advanced ship handling & manoeuvring, ECDIS Model Course 1.27, Radar/ARPA Model Course 1.07, VHF Radio Communications, Navigational Instruments (GPS, AIS, Echo Sounder, and Speed Log), and GMDSS Radio Communications Model Course 1.26.
Victor Tufts, VSTEP North America sales manager, said: “Together with our North American partner Annapolis Simulation, we are very happy to include the SeaSchool in the NAUTIS family.”
“The acquisition of this Simulator and Instructor Station guarantees realistic simulator training of the highest quality for the SeaSchool students for years to come.”
SeaSchool provides US Coast Guard approved courses and STCW-95 compliant training.
