Poseidon is glad to have been chosen as a partner for the uplift of the GMDSS training facility at BIM National Fisheries College Castletownbere, Ireland. All the four student positions have a console with real front panels of Sailor radio equipment as well as alarm panel and battery panel.
Principal Shane Begley emphasises that Poseidon ability to deliver the real radio equipment integrated in the simulator software was a major reason for the choice of supplier. The Poseidon Pharos GMDSS/GOC Simulator is of course STCW compliant and certified by DNV GL to be class A level. Installation, instructor training, GMDSS Teaching Aids and a three-year support agreement was a part of the complete simulator delivery.
