VSTEP to Provide FIDENA Maritime Schools with Simulators

VSTEP has been contracted by FIDENA to install FMB and Tug simulators at all of their Maritime Schools in Mexico.

VSTEP and its Mexican partner EDUTELSA will help FIDENA replace its old simulator technology with DNV certified NAUTIS simulators.

FIDENA is the educational institution in charge of formal and comprehensive education of all seafarers in Mexico. It is the only institution in Mexico that offers higher level study programs in the maritime field and has wide international recognition.

The maritime school purchased three NAUTIS DNV Class A Full Mission Bridge Simulators and three Tug Simulators for each of its nautical schools.

The NAUTIS Certified DNV Class A Full Mission Bridge simulators have a 270° horizontal field of view and are fully compliant with the Class A DNV Standards for Certification No. 2.14 for Maritime Simulator Systems and IMO model courses 1.22 and 1.32.

The simulators address all new elements from the newly revised IMO STCW Convention, and allow realistic training of a wide variety of training courses. The Tug Simulators are high performance desktop trainers with a 120-degrees horizontal outside field of view.

The Vera Cruz, Altamira, Lazaro Cardenas and Manzanillo environments have been added to the simulators for training.

The contract marks a successful partnership between VSTEP and its distributor EDUTELSA. VSTEP will take care of installation and delivery of the simulators at the FIDENA schools in Mazatlan, Tampico and Vera Cruz.

The NAUTIS Port Creation Tool was also purchased, to allow FIDENA to create their own simulator environments in addition to the extensive NAUTIS environment library.
