    Resolve Marine Academy unveils new simulator

    Training // May 2, 2013

    Resolve Maritime Academy  is completing the installation of a Transas engineroom simulator, the ERS 5000 'TechSim,' at its Fort Lauderdale, Florida  simulation training centre at Port Everglades. 

    The new Transas training platform has several versatile models to choose from, including podded and conventional vessels, diesel-electric, and slow or medium speed plants.

    The ERS 5000 TechSim allows the Academy to expand its course offerings for engineers from all sectors of the maritime industry including the offshore, tanker and cruise sectors.

    “The new engine room simulator will be connected to the Academy’s main bridge simulator, a Transas NT Pro 5000 Class-A Full Mission Bridge , which will enable combined bridge and engineroom training options for various courses including Integrated Systems and Resource Management”, said Dave Boldt, Simulation Training Group Manager at Resolve.

    “The ability to combine engineroom with bridge simulator training scenarios for resource management and integrated systems training is exceptionally valuable for our clients and their personnel,” Boldt added. 

    The academy plans to begin offering the new training programmes this summer. 

    The Transas ERS TechSim is designed to meet the requirements of the STCW Code. The scope of training objectives corresponds to specifications of standard competence for engine department personnel  (Chapter III of the STCW Code, IMO Model Courses 2.07, 7.02, 7.04), which provide for the use of simulators for training engineers as well as engineering training for operational, management and support personnel.
