A new simulator centre for maritime training at the port of Burgas in Bulgaria has been opened, by the City of Burgas and its association of environmental organisations.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The maritime simulator centre was developed as part of an EU project to provide enhanced training of fishermen and post-graduation courses for mariners in Bulgaria, and is being inaugurated in line with the expansion of the port of Burgas.

The DNV certified Class A NAUTIS Full Mission Bridge Simulator, with 240° projection view, was delivered and installed by Dutch company VSTEP, along with an instructor station and debriefing area for post training review.

Prior to the opening, the simulator was also approved by the Bulgarian Maritime Administration. It will now be used to provide courses on ship handling, ECDIS and bridge team training in compliance with the latest IMO requirements and model courses.

The Naval Academy in Varna, already using its own VSTEP simulator, will provide professional maritime instructors to assist and evaluate students training on the simulator and will also train the City of Burgas employed instructors to operate the simulator autonomously.{/mprestriction}
