Dr. Bram Paper, Mayor of Rotterdam (right) and
Al Ueltschi, president of FlightSafety/MarineSafety
International, toast the recent joint venture agree- ment to sponsor a maritime research and training center in the Port of Rotterdam.
Marine Safety International (MSI) and the Municipality of
Rotterdam announced a joint ven- ture to establish a world-class mari- time research and training center in
Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
The center, to be managed and operated by MarineSafety Interna- tional Rotterdam B.V., will house six state-of-the-art electronic simu- lators. They will be used for re- search related to harbor improve- ments and vessel safety as well as training of ships' officers, harbor pilots, cadets and vessel traffic con- trollers.
The joint venture document was signed by Dr. Rene Smit, Rotterdam vice mayor and alderman for the port, and Albert Ueltschi, founder and president of FlightSafety/
Mr. Ueltschi commented on the long tradition of excellence his com- pany has earned over its 40 years in the simulator training field. He said: "We plan to work with our friends in
Rotterdam to make this center the focal point of maritime research and training in Europe and the world."
Pieter Struijus, the Port of
Rotterdam's executive director for shipping, noted, "The establishment of such an advanced center is in keeping with Rotterdam's aim of being an integral logistic transport center."
The MarineSafety Rotterdam
Center will be comprised of three ships' bridge simulators, two radar/
ARPA bridges and a multi-station
Vessel Traffic System (VTS) simu- lator.
One of the bridge simulators will have a 360-degree field of view and be on a hydraulically driven motion base to simulate the effects of sea state on the ship.
The Rotterdam Simulator Re- search and Training Center will be located in the Port of Rotterdam and is planned to be operational early in 1993.
