We are pleased to announce that the contract has been signed for the delivery of our new maritime simulation centre.
The contract has been agreed with Wärtsilä, a global leader in smart technologies and complete lifecycle solutions for the marine and energy markets.
Scheduled for completion in spring 2019, the new facility will be the largest ship and port simulation training centre in the UK and is the next big step forward in Solent’s Warsash School of Maritime, Science and Engineering wider investment plans.
Syamantak Bhattacharya, Dean of the School, says: “The simulation centre will be a central pillar of our maritime education, training and research programme and we are pleased to be able to call on the global experience and extensive industry knowledge from Wärtsilä as the project now gets underway.
“Wärtsilä see this project as their UK showcase, and I’m delighted at the level of product innovation this will bring to the University,” Syamantak continued.
The new marine simulation centre will provide a state of the art facility with:
The centre will also offer the opportunity for several new specialist training courses, including:
“We are extremely proud to have been selected to provide the simulators for this very important training facility. The quality and flexibility of our solutions are the highest on the market, and have been developed to deliver the most realistic and valuable training possible for the marine officers of the future. The digital technology used aligns very closely with Wärtsilä’s Smart Marine initiatives, whereby high levels of digitalisation and connectivity are employed to deliver even greater efficiencies,” says Joonas Makkonen, Vice President, Voyage Solutions, Wärtsilä Marine Solutions.
