Rotterdam based international maritime education and training specialist STC Group has ordered Wärtsilä simulator software solutions for three of its Netherlands maritime training centers.
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.
“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,” says Joep Bonten, senior Project Manager Simulators at STC Group. “It will also ensure that maritime education at all STC Group locations in the Netherlands is identical and future-proof.”
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 also provide project management and training. An extensive maintenance agreement will ensure optimal system performance.
