Wärtsilä simulator software to support navigation training in the Netherlands

Wärtsilä’s simulator software has been selected by the Rotterdam based STC Group for installation to three maritime training centres to provide teaching in safe and efficient navigation.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The Wärtsilä Navi-Trainer Professional (NTPRO) 5000 software will enable users to train in a range of navigational environments and under various situations. Navigator competency related to navigation bridge operations can be practiced and assessed using the Navi-Trainer Professional 5000 simulator, helping to equip trainees with the skills needed onboard modern vessels.

“Safety at sea requires that crews be fully and properly trained. Our simulator software is designed to ensure that trainees can attain hands-on, realistic experience with the latest navigational systems. In collaboration with our friends and partners at training institutions across the globe, we have developed a comprehensive, flexible and customisable product maintenance and development programme,” said Alex Ponomarev, sales expert for Wärtsilä Voyage Simulation and Training.

“The three new simulator classrooms to be installed at STC Group locations in Rotterdam, Stellendam, and Katwijk will allow our vocational students to spend even more time on practical simulator training. It will also ensure that maritime education at all STC Group locations in the Netherlands is identical and future-proof, while being made possible by our ERDF-financed project ‘Standing Strong for Rotterdam-South’”, stated Joep Bonten, senior project manager Simulators at STC Group.

The order with Wärtsilä was booked in April 2019. The solutions will be installed and ready for use by the end of August 2019, in time for the start of the new academic year. In addition to the software, Wärtsilä will also provide project management and training. An extensive maintenance agreement to ensure optimal performance of the system will also be entered into. {/mprestriction}
