Wärtsilä Navigational Simulators
For vessel navigation and equipment handling training in cold weather conditions (below 0°C) and in ice-infested waters and ports.
Our ice navigation simulator is part of the NTPRO (Navi Trainer Professional) 5000 navigational simulator system and has been developed jointly with the Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute and Krylov Shipbuilding and Research Institute. It enables vessel navigation training in freezing weather conditions (below 0°C) and ice-infested areas. The solution covers training modules for accessing ice and weather conditions, safe handling of ships and equipment in different situations, and reducing the possibility of accidents.
The configuration includes a part-task bridge and a full mission bridge. It enables both, training in a classroom setup as well as off-location training with cloud simulation options.
The NTPRO 5000 simulator system is designed to meet IMO Convention requirements and DNV standards:
STCW 2010 Section B – Guidance regarding training of masters and officers for ships operating in polar waters.
DNV Standard for Certification no. 3.312, “Competence of Officers for Navigation in Ice,” October 2008.
The simulator is approved by DNV as Bridge Operation Simulator Class A with class notation “Integrated simulator system, NAUT AW (SIM), DYNPOS – AUT (SIM), HSC, TUG, ICE, AHTS,” and Dynamic Positioning Simulator Class A as per the latest edition of Standard for Certification of Maritime Simulators No. 2.14 January 2011.
