New Orleans maritime training centre integrates new simulation technology

The Delgado Fire and Industrial School in New Orleans in the US has integrated a range of simulation technology from XVR with its Transas simulators, for use in courses at its new 19,000 square foot Maritime and Industrial Training Center.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Delgado is the first training centre in the world to deploy XVR Incident Command simulation systems in conjunction with Transas’ full mission, part task and classroom marine simulators. The centre is expected to be attended by 10,000 students each year.

“We have worked with Transas for nearly fifteen years now, and have always been able to rely on them to support our programmes and deliver the new technologies that we need to solve our clients’ training needs,” said Rick Schwab, senior director of the facility.

“When our team was introduced to XVR Simulation by Transas, we immediately knew that it was what we needed to take our Incident Command training to the next level. Transas and XVR provide a combination of products that together can expand the realism and effectiveness of maritime emergency and crisis response training.”

This is the first major joint project deployment by Transas and XVR Simulation since the companies announced a new strategic cooperation agreement in January.

“The input of experienced experts, such as the team at Delgado, who are thoroughly familiar with industry needs, is a vital component of producing complete solutions that can provide a positive contribution to maritime safety, a cornerstone of Transas’ THESIS concept,” said Neil Bennett, vice president of sales and customer support for Transas in the Americas region.{/mprestriction}
