NAUTIS simulators for Amsterdam tug and OSV training centreTraining // November 18, 2013
Iskes Towage & Salvage has signed an agreement with VSTEP for the delivery of two NAUTIS tug and OSV simulators. The simulators are the first units purchased for the new Iskes/Damen Training Centre in Amsterdam.
VSTEP will initially provide a 360-degree NAUTIS Full Mission Tug Simulator and a 240-degree NAUTIS Desktop Trainer.
At a later stage, these tug and OSV simulators will be expanded with another 360-degree Full Mission Tug Simulator so that a complete exercise scenario with the assisted vessel and two tugs (one at the stern and one at the bow) can be conducted.
The centre will initially be used for internal training, with courses offered for external parties starting in the second quarter of 2014.
