Wallem Maritime acquires simulator

ADVERTISEMENT

Wallem Maritime Training Centre Philippines acquired NAUTIS full mission bridge simulator
to train ship officers and be compliant with international legislation. Wallem Shipmanagement Hong Kong installed the next generation VSTEP NAUTIS full mission bridge simulator at the Wallem Maritime Training Centre Philippines (WMTCP).

The acquisition coincided with the entry into force of the 2010 Manila Amendments of the Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping (STCW Convention).

“We want to train our officers on actual sea work not only to navigate but to confront them with any possible scenario that could be encountered thereby improving the efficiency and effectiveness of our Filipino officers in team work on the navigation bridge,” said Jan van der Wee, general manager of the WMTCP.
“We selected the NAUTIS Full Mission Bridge Simulator for our training centre because it is fully certified by DNV, allows for future expansion by adding overlays and offers high quality updated training at an affordable price. The graphics in the simulator look very natural and real, which in combination with the realistic bridge mock-up allows for very realistic and true-to-life maritime simulation.”
