    New training centre opens in Amsterdam

    Training // June 5, 2014

    On 3 June a new tug and OSV training centre was officially opened in Amsterdam.

    The 360 Control training centre is a  joint venture between Iskes Towage & Salvage and Damen Shipyards.

    The simulators for the centre were delivered and installed by VSTEP.

    The VSTEP simulators include a 360-degree NAUTIS Full Mission Tug Simulator and a 240-degree NAUTIS Desktop Trainer to allow realistic training of tug and OSV handling and manoeuvring.

    To allow training of complete exercise scenarios using a vessel and two tugs (one at the stern and one at the bow) the simulators will be expanded with another 360-degree simulator at a later stage.

    A NAUTIS Instructor Station was installed to provide instructor control during exercises.
