System integrator RH Marine and developer of maritime training solutions VSTEP Simulation have signed a cooperation agreement, enabling VSTEP to supply RH Marine’s ECDIS chart and navigation system with its bridge simulators for schools, training institutes and fleet owners.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} As part of the agreement, VSTEP’s simulator software is being upgraded. RH Marine customers will soon be able to virtually train their ECDIS skills in more locations anywhere in the world. In addition, customers from outside the naval and superyacht industry can also get acquainted with its ECDIS system.

“We are two Dutch companies whose products complement each other very well. Thanks to this cooperation, RH Marine’s ECDIS system is now included in our portfolio for customers. We are very happy with that option,” said Ties Klapwijk, head of business development NAUTIS at VSTEP Simulation.

Last year, both companies worked together on the new bridge simulator at the Royal Naval College (KIM) in Den Helder. For this simulator RH Marine also supplied the chart and navigation software and VSTEP supplied the 360 degree virtual outside view.

“Although leading, we operate in a niche market. This increases our availability and visibility abroad. Moreover, as more people start using our system, we can receive more feedback. As people increasingly come into contact with our system during their education or training, the better known it becomes with our target group,” said portfolio manager Marcel Vermeulen of RH Marine.

According to Klapwijk, the cooperation also offers benefits in case of service or malfunctions. “Because we are based close together and the lines of communication are short, we can react quickly,” he said. {/mprestriction}
