With the mandatory introduction of ECDIS for SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) vessels, ECDIS operation training becomes essential. And our simulator ensures efficient training, fully compliant with the latest IMO, IEC and STCW requirements and standards.
Wärtsilä ECDIS Simulator is based on the Navi-Sailor ECDIS Multifunction Display (MFD) 4000 with inbuilt Navi-Planner voyage planning software, both fully compliant with the latest performance standards for shipborne navigation equipment. It incorporates Chart Delivery Server Emulator for chart delivery, charts updates, and license updates in automatic mode, which is critical during ECDIS training. Other features include a fictitious area database, new training chart folios, and weather forecasts.
