HELMEPA purchased a NAUTIS DNV Class A FMB Simulator and Instructor Station for training of its fleet members. The simulator was delivered and installed by VSTEP at HELMEPA premises in Athens, Greece.
The simulator purchased by HELMEPA included a NAUTIS DNV Class A FMB simulator with 240° horizontal field of view and an Instructor Station. It is being used to train the navigation and manoeuvring skills of HELMEPA’s member shipping companies’ personnel.

Our FMB simulator allows HELMEPA members to train effectively ship and boat handling skills in compliance with the latest IMO requirements and model courses.”
