Transas equips Iraqi academy

Transas has announced that it is to provide three simulators to the Arabian Gulf Academy For Maritime Studies, situated in Basra, Iraq’s largest port.

The systems to be supplied include an Engine Room simulator, GMDSS simulator, and Radar/ARPA simulator.

Using ERS 5000, the engine room simulator, engineers will train on how to operate an engine room based on a general cargo vessel model, including a general cargo propulsion and electric plant simulation. The classroom is equipped with 14 workstations.

The GMDSS simulator TGS 5000 is designed for seafarers training for the General Operator Certificate (GOC) or Restricted Operator Certificate (ROC). Each of eight trainee consoles includes control panels with VHF&DSC, MF/HF&DSC, remote alarm/distress box for Inmarsat mini-C GMDSS and battery panel.

One of the features of this simulator is its ability to imitate radio wave propagation using a radio ether model, which takes into account the frequency range, time of the day and distance between the stations.

Trainees can also change from network operation to a single-user mode to provide self-education while learning and testing.

The Radar/ARPA simulation module is the third generation of radar system produced by Transas, which the company says can simulate a wide range of effects: shaded areas, loss of targets in heavy sea, radar picture changes depending on ship’s rolling and pitching, echo-signals of different range depending on geometry and reflection capability of a shore line.
