MOL introduces 360-degree simulator at training centre in India

Tokyo: Mitsui O.S.K. Lines announces it has installed 'the world's most advanced' bridge simulator at its MOL Training Centre at the Maharashtra Academy of Naval Education & Training (MANET) in India. The Transas Navi-Trainer Professional 4000 features a main bridge with India's first 360-degree large-screen, and a second bridge with a 120-degree field of view.

MOL says the new simulator allows practical training under realistic conditions with first bridge and second bridge, such as simultaneous operations of two vessels, port calls and departures, and training related to vessel stability. It will open this simulator to students of its partner maritime university MANET, helping to promote their skills.  [07/02/08]
