Transas Marine received an order from Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL) for a mathematical and visual model of the company’s 75,000 gt container ship. OOCL will use the container ship model at its simulator training facilities in Zhoushan, China, where a Navi-Trainer Professional simulator from Transas was installed in early 2000. The model, based on real characteristics of OOCL’s vessels, will give the navigators an excellent opportunity to try the maneuverability of their ships and improve their navigating skills prior to embarking upon an actual voyage.
Transas will develop the simulated prototype of the OOCL’s container ship based on the comprehensive data and ensure that the fully realistic behavior of the vessel is achieved in the simulation environment. Upon the completion of the development process, this container ship model will be added to the extensive database used with the Transas Navi-Trainer series of ship handling simulators.
