Wärtsilä Navigational Simulators
For comprehensive and reality-based training and certification of VTS operators and supervisors.
Our VTS Simulation and Training equipment and software imitate all the main VTS functions and allow instructors to create areas with different navigational situations, control target ships and generate various training scenarios and tasks. VTS simulators fully correspond to the functional capabilities of our actual VTS systems operating in dozens of ports worldwide. VTS simulators can operate in a common environment with navigational and GMDSS (Global Maritime Distress and Safety System) simulators. This enables interactive group exercises under instructor supervision.
The simulators comply and exceed relevant requirements stated in IALA (International Association of Lighthouse Authorities) recommendation V-103 on Standards for Training and Certification of VTS Personnel.
