Tug and OSV Training Centre Opened in AmsterdamThe high-tech training centre is a project of 360-Control, a joint venture between Iskes Towage & Salvage and Damen Shipyards and is located at the port entrance of the Amsterdam North sea canal.

The VSTEP simulators delivered include a 360-degree NAUTIS Full Mission Tug Simulator and a 240-degree NAUTIS Desktop Trainer to allow realistic training of tug & OSV handling and maneuvering.

To allow training of complete exercise scenarios using a vessel and two tugs (one at the stern and one at the bow) these Tug and OSV simulators will be expanded with another 360-degree NAUTIS Full Mission Tug Simulator at a later stage.

A NAUTIS Instructor Station was installed to provide total instructor control during exercises.

The 360-Control training centre is set to become a centre of excellence for tug and offshore training in the region by combining the expertise of industry leaders Damen and Iskes with advanced next gen simulators.
