Radio Holland has supplied a complete NavCom package including VSAT Communications and Sat TV, as well as a DP2 system to a Hybrid shallow-water multi-purpose supply vessel (MPSV) owned and operated by Zumaia Offshore, S.L, Bilbao, Spain.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The vessel ‘Nora B’, built at Neptune Marine, Netherlands, is a multipurpose workboat designed for offshore survey operations and construction works in shallow waters.

Radio Holland supplied a NavCom package, Furuno NavCom equipment (X-Band radar, river radar, DPGS, echosounder, Navtex, AIS, MF/HF, BNWAS, Sat-C SSAS/LRIT), Jotron safety equipment, Sailor VHFs and VSAT, Intellian Sat TV, Raytheon Anschutz Standard 22 Gyrocompass and the DPT4500 DP2 system of RH Marine.

The DP2 system is a requirement in offshore construction activities due to enforced safety restrictions in the field. The ship became operational in April and after having performed to client satisfaction at its maiden project in the Eemshaven area, North of the Netherlands, she is now mobilising for her next assignment at the English Channel.

“We have already delivered and installed multiple extensive NavCom plus DP packages for several years now at Neptune and have built a close relationship with the yard as key supplier. The end customer Zumaia Offshore already had one of their previous vessels (Aitana B) equipped by Radio Holland with NavCom and a DP1 system. We are happy to work with Neptune and Zumaia again!” said Kenneth de Grood, account manager Radio Holland Netherlands.{/mprestriction}

  • Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy takes delivery of Wärtsilä Cloud Simulation solution

    Wärtsilä has successfully delivered its brand-new Cloud Simulation solution to Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy. Comprising a combination of cloud-based solutions, including navigational, engine room and liquid cargo handling simulators, Wärtsilä is the first company to offer class-approved cloud-based simulation technology to the maritime industry.

    The online installation was deployed in early July, allowing the Academy to continue providing its training despite ongoing social distancing and travel restrictions.

    Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy is a maritime training provider in the region, which is now powered by Wärtsilä Voyage technology. The addition of the online installations of NTPro and TechSim will broaden the simulation-based training offering available at the Academy.

    Cloud Simulation technology takes simulation beyond the boundaries of the physical classroom, to provide location and device independence, and to deliver simulation-based training wherever, whenever, and however it is needed by the user.

    Remote access to training allows students and instructors to reach various Wärtsilä Voyage simulation models on their personal devices, away from the classroom and without the need for specific Wärtsilä software. Both the TechSim and NTPRO platforms in the cloud provide a classroom configuration with trainer and multiple student stations for familiar instructor-led training.

    “We are excited to be at the leading edge of this technology in the maritime industry and enable trainees to acquire a wide range of navigational and engineering skills, without the need to physically attend the training centre. By having remote access to the simulation library and any classroom-based exercise, instructors can easily manage the application and deliver the training,” commented Torsten Büssow, director, Wärtsilä Voyage.

    "We are very pleased to have this next-generation of blended-learning solutions delivered by Wärtsilä Voyage. The bespoke training that this solution allows to deliver will undeniably enhance the training experience of our students. The Wärtsilä Voyage distance learning application will surely open up many new training opportunities inside and outside the physical classroom”, said Capt. Clive Hotham, head of Marine Short Courses and Simulator, Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy.
