WÄRTSILÄ SIMULATOR SOFTWARE FOR NETHERLANDS TRAINING CENTRES

Wednesday, May 22, 2019 

Software solutions from Wärtsilä have been selected for installation in three maritime training centres, operated by the Rotterdam based STC Group, an international maritime transport and logistics education provider.

The turnkey systems will allow training to commence immediately following site acceptance. The Wärtsilä Navi-Trainer Professional (NTPRO) 5000 software will enable the teaching of the latest approaches to navigation, and equip trainees with the skills needed onboard modern vessels. Wärtsilä’s tailored approach to the set task, together with its customisable software solutions were cited as being key considerations in the contract award.

“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’”, said Joep Bonten, senior Project Manager Simulators at STC Group.

The Wärtsilä 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 provide project management and training. An extensive maintenance agreement to ensure optimal performance of the system will be entered into.
