Software solutions from Wärtsilä have been selected for installation in three maritime training centers in The Netherlands.

The turnkey systems is designed to allow training to commence immediately following the site acceptance. The systems have been ordered by the Rotterdam based STC Group, an international maritime transport and logistics education provider. The order with Wärtsilä was booked in April 2019.

The Wärtsilä Navi-Trainer Professional (NTPRO) 5000 software will enable the teaching of the latest approaches to navigation, and equip trainees with the skills needed onboard modern vessels. Wärtsilä’s unique and tailored approach to the set task, together with its highly customizable software solutions were cited as being key considerations in the contract award.

“The three new simulator classrooms to be installed at STC Group locations in Rotterdam, Stellendam, and Katwijk will allow our vocational students to spend even more time on practical simulator training. It will also ensure that maritime education at all STC Group locations in the Netherlands is identical and future-proof, while being made possible by our ERDF*-financed project ‘Standing Strong for Rotterdam-South’”, says Joep Bonten, senior Project Manager Simulators at STC Group.

The Wärtsilä solutions will be installed and ready for use by the end of August 2019, in time for the start of the new academic year.
