Glasgow College adds a range of new simulators

Transas reports that it has completed the installation of an integrated ship simulator package at the City of Glasgow College in Scotland, the country's largest college.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The system forms a core part of the new Riverside Campus, Phase One of the City of Glasgow College's super campus development.

The installed equipment includes a full mission engine room simulator and four simulator labs for studying electronic navigation systems, GMDSS, liquid cargo handling and DP operations. Also installed are five ship handling simulators comprising four bridges with 135 degrees visualisation and a 360 degrees full mission ship handling simulator.

“Scotland has a strong maritime history and now 10,000 students a year will benefit from this investment at our Riverside Campus and continue and build on that proud tradition,” said Iain Marley, City of Glasgow College project director.

“The simulation suite allows our students to have a highly realistic experience of operations including navigation, engine room and cargo handling activities within a wide range of ship types.”

“This leading edge technology and hands-on experience of nautical chart rooms will provide advanced and innovative training which will enhance the skills and future employment prospects for cadets and also more experienced officers and crew.”{/mprestriction}
