In Azerbaijan, a Fast Rescue Boat simulator based on the Navi-Trainer Professional software (NTPRO) will be used to train the SOCAR personnel to ensure safety at sea. The SOCAR is involved in exploring oil and gas fields, and transporting oil, gas, and gas condensate, among other activities.
Training will be focused on Search and Rescue operations, in particular rescue boats operation, helicopter operation, and coordination of SAR operations in most adverse weather conditions.
Transas has also completed a project to supply the navigational and GMDSS simulators to Girne American University (GAU), in the Northern part of Cyprus.
The configuration at the GAU includes two navigational bridges based on NTPRO software.
The main bridge with five projector visualisation channels will enable training in various ship handling operations including bridge team management. The secondary bridge with one visualisation channel will be used for familiarisation and basic tasks. Both bridges are equipped with GMDSS workplaces for practising communications.
Evgeny Drumachik, Transas Simulation Sales director, Europe, commented: “We believe this medium-size simulation complex will significantly improve quality of education and training in the Girne American University, in accordance with the STCW and beyond the conventional courses.”
