Maritieme Academie Holland agrees simulator deal

The Maritieme Academie Holland is to install VSTEP simulators at its new Inland Navigation Center in Harlingen.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The deal includes the purchase of a Full Mission Inland Navigation Simulator and three Inland console trainers. The simulator centre will be the first to provide simulator training in accordance with the requirements for inland simulators by the Central Commission for the Navigation on the Rhine (CCNR).

The academy’s curriculum includes training courses for professional fishermen, inland shipping personnel and seafarers. Delivery and installation of the simulator will take place in Q4 2015, with VSTEP to provide instructor training to academy simulator instructors after implementation.

“The Maritieme Academie Holland, as one of the leading educational institutions in European inland and maritime navigation, has always been a forerunner in terms of providing state of the art learning facilities for our students and clients, such as Europe’s most advanced inland training vessels,” said Arjen Mintjes, director of the Maritieme Academie Harlingen.

“We are proud to have VSTEP as our partner to introduce the very first Full Mission Inland Navigation Simulator Center built entirely in accordance to the currently developed requirements for Inland Simulators by the Central Commission for the Navigation on the Rhine (CCNR).”

“The Maritieme Academie Holland found the innovative technology and professional approach of VSTEP particularly convincing. The NAUTIS simulators are more efficient and require less hardware than simulator solutions of competitors.”{/mprestriction}
