Simulator answers increasing demand for VTS training
MARIN already commissioned its first in-house Vessel Traffic Services (VTS) simulator back in 1986. By 1998, this was replaced by a modern, state-of-the-art facility and recently, new features have been added such as Automatic Identification System (AIS) and course-speed control (remote pilotage). This fall, Port of Amsterdam has also installed a MARIN VTS simulator. Report provides an update.
