    Transas supplies the first simulation complex for inland navigation training in the Republic of Paraguay

    The Transas navigational simulator Navi-Trainer Professional 5000 was installed at the Centre for Maritime and River Shipowners (CAFyM) in Asuncion for training crews in tugs operations in the Parana-Paraguay Waterway, the Company said in its press release.

    The project was carried out in conjunction with VTG S.R.L., the Transas’ local representative, which is covering commercial and technical needs of the Paraguayan market for all Transas products. The NTPRO version 5.35 installed at the CAFyM centre is an excellent training solution due to its new capabilities for operation with different types of boats and barges in river waters. The simulator’s configuration comprises four visual channels based on the Transas Seagull 6000 visualisation software, conning module, ECDIS and ARPA/Radar. An additional maneuvering console is provided with the dedicated hardware to simulate maneuvering of conventional boats and push boats.

    Transas provides these capabilities right in accordance with Paraguayan market demands. The Republic of Paraguay has a special geographical position being located within the basin of the Waterway, the most commercially important river system in South America. The country is surrounded by two large rivers, the Paraguay River and Parana River, where navigation is only possible by inland waters. This causes specific training needs, which are confidently met by the Transas simulation systems with inland navigation features.

    The opening ceremony of the simulation complex was held at the CAFyM headquarters and was attended by relevant authorities, such as Ambassador Eladio Loizaga (the Minister of Foreign Affairs), Dr. Guillermo Sosa (the Minister of Labour, Employment and Social Security), Mr. Ramon Gimenez Gaona (the Minister of Public Works and Communications), Mr. Juan Carlos Muñoz Menha (the President of the CAFyM), and military authorities and personalities dealing with river environmental issues.

    During the ceremony, Mr. Juan Carlos Muñoz Menha gave a presentation on capabilities of the new Transas simulator through various exercises, detailing possible applications, and highlighted the valuable contribution and support of Transas and VTG S. R. L. throughout the whole project.
