On November 27, 2014, the President of Georgia, Giorgi Margvelashvili, and the President of Latvia, Andris Berzins, visited Batumi State Maritime Academy (BSMA) to open the renovated state-of-the-art simulation centre.
The Full Mission Offshore simulator, which has become the extension of the existing simulation complex has been developed and installed by Transas Marine.
The full mission Transas offshore simulator with 270 degrees visualisation is based on Transas’ NTPRO 5000 software and will be used for training in dynamic positioning operations.
It will enable training of crews involved in transfer and supply of mobile offshore units.
Especially for the project, Transas has developed simulator areas for three ports of Georgia: Batumi, Poti and Kulevi. In addition, the simulator uses next generation universal hardware solutions.
Use of the touch screen technology together with the dedicated hardware makes it possible to use virtually any controls on the bridge without compromising training.
