Transas Launches Stand-Alone Engineroom Simulator

The new stand-alone simulator ERS Solo was launched by Transas in late November. This simulator broadens the company's existing product range of Engine Room simulators, which includes the PC-based ERS 2000 and the ERS 3000, which is fitted with real engine room controls.

The ERS Solo possesses all the functionality of its networked predecessors, other than their on-line Instructor functions.

With the ERS Solo simulator, the Instructor-generated tasks are performed in off-line mode. The main simulated machinery includes the ship's diesel propulsion power plant, with models for 2-stroke and 4-stroke diesel engines, an electric power plant and a number of auxiliary systems.

The main purpose of this new simulator development from Transas is to provide a cost-effective but efficient instru ment suitable for both preliminary and knowledge refreshment training of Engine Room watch-keeping personnel.
