Transas and XVR Simulation have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to expand their maritime training capabilities and to deploy common complex projects in the safety and security simulation market.
Transas and XVR Simulation are currently exploring technical integration for a range of specific training needs. One of the common solutions for the large customer base of Transas is an advanced fire fighting training solution.
The companies believe that their new cooperation will help offer their customers emergency and crisis response training as well as damage control training on board ships inside a virtual environment.
Ralf Lehnert, Vice President for the newly established Transas Academy, said: “We are delighted to enter into this partnership, as we see great opportunities in the future of incident control management training solutions in the maritime domain. XVR Simulation has a proven record addressing crisis management tools mainly for shore-based incident services and together with Transas strong footprint in the maritime training market we will extend our combined offerings to our existing and future customers.”
Joost Beerthuis, CEO of XVR Simulation, added: “We believe that with this cooperation, the maritime industry will benefit from the combined training solutions which have great benefits for everyone who has safety and security as their priority.”
