The simulation center of the Technical University of Varna (TU Varna) has officially opened its new simulation wing featuring a NAUTIS Class B Dynamic Positioning (DP) Simulator, a NAUTIS Class A Full Mission Bridge (FMB) Simulator and a new ECDIS Simulator classroom. A fully multifunctional 360° bridge setup can be formed by directly combining the Class A FMB and Class B DP simulators. This bridge can also be transformed into a Full Mission Tug Simulator.
In addition to the DP and FMB simulators, the existing NAUTIS ECDIS Classroom has been extended with 5 new ECDIS stations. The NAUTIS ECDIS Classroom is now fully operational to provide type approved training for all current ECDIS systems, including Maris, Kelvin Hughes, NavMaster and SevenCS’ E-Globe which are all integrated into the NAUTIS ECDIS Systems.
Following the opening of its simulation center in 2012, the TU Varna has known a steady growth and further expansion into a new simulator wing was required. All the simulators in the TU Varna training center are delivered and installed by VSTEP.
