VSTEP Simulator

VSTEP has delivered and deployed two new simulators at the Nikola Vaptsarov Naval Academy in Varna, Bulgaria, which will be used to train the academy’s naval and merchant marine students.

Together with its Bulgarian partner NavySim, VSTEP installed a new 360° class A full mission bridge simulator and an incident management simulator.

VSTEP director Pjotr van Schothorst said: "It is an honour to have our VSTEP simulators become part of the rich tradition of the Nikola Vaptsarov Naval Academy.

"To have Bulgaria’s finest maritime students use our simulators to become better mariners makes us very proud.

Boasting a complete 360° surround horizontal field of view, the Nautis full mission bridge simulator also includes an improved oil spill recovery and onboard fire training.

The Nautis simulator complies with the class A DNV standards for certification for maritime simulator systems and IMO model courses 1.22 and 1.32.

Furthermore, the academy will use the RescueSim incident management simulator to train and prepare for any anticipated incident, both on and offshore.

Featuring specialised modules targeted at training for shipboard, port and industrial incidents, as well as offshore incidents, the RescueSim simulator comes with a customised port of Varna in a full 3D view.

Currently, the academy offers training to professionals for both navy and merchant marine students in all maritime areas.
