IMCO Purchases NAUTIS ECDIS Classroom

The International Maritime College Oman (IMCO) purchased a classroom of NAUTIS Desktop Trainers and a NAUTIS Instructor Station. The simulators allow the IMCO to add the certified ECDIS Model course 1.27 training to its curriculum. The classroom was delivered and installed by VSTEP engineers in the IMCO premises in Sohar, Oman.

The purchase included 12 NAUTIS Desktop trainer units and a NAUTIS Instructor Station. The desktop trainers at IMCO are high-performance simulators, including a 120-degrees horizontal outside field, as well as radar/ARPA view and type-approved MARIS ECDIS. The desktop trainers are compatible with different types of ECDIS, including type-approved MARIS, Kelvin Hughes and PC Maritime Navmaster. To guarantee optimal realism in training, the Gulf of Oman ports of Duqm, Sultan Qaboos and Mina Al Fahl were all modeled and integrated into the simulators.

IMCO is an institute of higher education for maritime, port, shipping, transport or process industries careers. IMCO is supported by the STC-Group from Rotterdam, in the Netherlands.
