ROC Friese Poort has opened an Inland Simulator Centre in Urk, the Netherlands, for inland navigation training in the region.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The Inland Simulator Centre features two NAUTIS Simulators from VSTEP, one with a 240-degree field of view and one with 120-degrees. Also included are an Instructor Station and a Debriefing Room.

The two inland simulators are named after an inland ship and icebreaker with Urk-based owners, Hinte and Jelly Auke.

ROC Friese Poort provides vocational education for youths and adults, and will use its new simulator technology to allow students to practice real-life situations in inland navigation in a controlled setting.{/mprestriction}
