The Akademi Maritim (AKMI) Suaka Bahari Cirebon has selected VSTEP for the supply of one DNV Class A FMB Simulator to train its students in accordance with the latest IMO requirements and model courses.

On August 22, 2016, VSTEP and its local distributor PT Megatech Mandiri Setia have been awarded the contract from AKMI Suaka Bahari Cirebon to deliver a NAUTIS DNV Class A FMB simulator with 240° horizontal field of view and a NAUTIS Instructor Station. The signing ceremony was attended by representatives from PT Pelindo 2, the Indonesian Ministry of Education and the Indonesian Navy.

Robin Lim, Business Development Manager, VSTEP APAC: “It has been an honour for VSTEP that AKMI Suaka Bahari Cirebon has trusted us as the supplier for the Full Mission Bridge Simulator. We share the common spirit that the investment made by AKMI Suaka Bahari Cirebon should be beneficial for the current and future students of the Academy to prepare them for a maritime career either in Indonesia or in international waters.”

Asep Rahmat, SH, MM, Director of AKMI Suaka Bahari Cirebon: “We have been considering several suppliers for the Full Mission Shiphandling Simulator and finally we handed our trust to VSTEP, as we see them to have better solutions and a local support team. By using a VSTEP simulator, we are ahead of time by complying with STCW 2010 Manila Amendment as well as giving our students a platform for better training and education. We have great hopes that this simulator will be beneficial not only during the training, but also when our students become seafarers and able to compete internationally.”
