ROTTERDAM stimulator developer VSTEP and its Mexican partner Edutelsa, have won a contract to install tug simulators at all three FIDENA Maritime Schools in Mexico.

Mexico City-based FIDENA has three nautical schools in Mazatlan, Tampico and Veracruz. It is the only internationally recognised institution in Mexico that offers higher level study programmes in the maritime field.

FIDENA purchased three NAUTIS DNV Class A Full Mission Bridge Simulators and three Tug Simulators for each of its nautical schools to replace old simulator technology.

The NAUTIS Certified DNV Class A Full Mission Bridge simulators have a 270-degrees horizontal field of view and are fully compliant with the Class A DNV Standards for Certification No 2.14 for Maritime Simulator Systems and IMO model courses 1.22 and 1.32.

They address all elements of the revised IMO STCW Convention and allow realistic training. The tug simulators are high performance desktop trainers with a 120-degree horizontal field of view.

The Vera Cruz, Altamira, Lazaro Cardenas and Manzanillo environments have been added to the simulators for training.
