HELMEPA purchased a NAUTIS DNV Class A FMB Simulator and Instructor Station for training of its fleet members. The simulator was delivered in Q3 2015 and installed by VSTEP at HELMEPA premises in Athens, Greece. The simulator is being used to train the navigation and maneuvering skills of HELMEPA’s member shipping companies’ personnel. Joost van Ree, VSTEP Sales Director said, “We are proud to announce that a non-profit organization like HELMEPA has joined the VSTEP simulator family. Our FMB simulator allows HELMEPA members to train effectively ship and boat handling skills in compliance with the latest IMO requirements and model courses.” VSTEP delivered the simulator and provided selected HELMEPA staff with in-depth train-the-trainer courses for operation and maintenance of the simulators. HELMEPA is the pioneering voluntary marine environment protection association and in its capacity as The Maritime Training Centre for Pollution Prevention, Safety at Sea and Environmental Awareness.
