HELMEPA adds simulator for member training

HELMEPA, the non-profit marine environment protection association situated in Athens, Greece, has installed a simulator and instructor station at its premises for training of its fleet members.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The simulator was delivered by VSTEP, and included a NAUTIS DNV Class A FMB simulator with 240° horizontal field of view. It will be used to train HELMEPA member shipping companies’ personnel in navigation and manoeuvring skills.

The simulator was donated by associate corporate member DNV GL, in appreciation of the voluntary training HELMEPA has been offering to its members for 33 years.

“We are proud to announce that a non-profit organisation like HELMEPA has joined the VSTEP simulator family,” said Joost van Ree, VSTEP sales director.

“Our FMB simulator allows HELMEPA members to train effectively ship and boat handling skills in compliance with the latest IMO requirements and model courses.”{/mprestriction}
