VSTEP, in partnership with RH Marine, is set to deliver a classroom of NAUTIS simulators to the Royal Netherlands Navy. This will allow the next generation of Dutch seafarers to enhance their ship handling skills and prepare for their future workstations.

In line with the Royal Netherlands Navy’s extensive training measures, VSTEP will deliver new simulators enabling training to be done in classroom setups. This delivery will be completed together with RH Marine, a Dutch-based company offering integrated electrical and automation systems to defense, safety and security ships within the maritime industry.

In this joint project the desktop simulators will be delivered to the Royal Netherlands Navy’s training centre in Den Helder. The simulators will use NAUTIS software together with integrated interface to the (W)ECDIS of both OSI and RH Marine. This set up will allow groups of trainees to practice their navigation skills in highly detailed simulated environments. To enable even further realistic training, custom environments will be developed for the trainees to practise with.
