The Simulation Centre in the Riverside Campus

The simulation centre in the Riverside campus (Glasgow College) will be one of the largest, the most up to date and most technically advanced simulation suite in the UK.The configuration of the complex includes full mission navigational bridges, part-task bridges, full mission Engine Room Simulators, full mission Liquid Cargo Handling Simulators, full mission Crane Simulators, Vessel Traffic Service simulator, ECDIS and GMDSS classes.


The ship simulator suite forms a core part of the new Riverside Campus and the complex nature of the equipment and fit out require a high degree of integration with the New Campus NPD Co (Scottish Government's Non Profit Distributing revenue funded procurement model) design. Transas provided technical integration input into the refinement of design for the New NPD Campus project.

The simulator suite will include a full mission Engine Room Simulator, three simulator labs: for studying of electronic navigation systems, GMDSS training, Liquid Cargo Handling and DP operations training. Ship handling simulators part will house four part-task bridges with 135° visualisation and a 360° full mission ship handling simulator which will be used for advanced training and certification
