Carnival Sticks with Transas Simulators

Carnival Corp Sticks with Transas Simulators

Cruise liner conglomerate Carnival Corporation has signed a contract to use Transas simulators at the new Center for Simulator and Maritime Training (CSMART), scheduled to open in summer 2016 in Almere, the Netherlands.

Within this project, Transas will develop 12 cruise ship models and deliver 60 sailing areas specific for Carnival vessels’ operations and three new cruise ship engine models with different propulsion systems, including virtual replica of ship automation systems.

Carnival Corporation has operated its current CSMART training facility in Almere since 2009. The new CSMART facility will have the capacity for providing annual training for 6,500 deck and engineering officers.

The CSMART facility will house navigational and engine room simulators in various configurations from classroom stations up to part-task and full mission solutions, interlinked to provide training and assessment for the entire crew. The new simulation complex will be three times larger than the existing facility.

“At Carnival Corporation, our number one priority is the safety and comfort of the nearly 11 million guests who sail with us every year,” said Captain Hans Hederstrom, managing director of CSMART. “The solutions from Transas provide our instructors with truly state-of-the-art technology — and that gives them the ability to provide the best possible training experience to the thousands of deck and engineering officers who go through our intensive curriculum.”
