ALGOMA CENTRAL CORPORATION AND GEORGIAN COLLEGE TO DISPLAY MARINE SIMULATORS AT CANAL DAYS.

Algoma Central Corporation and Georgian College will attend the Canal Days celebration at Port Colborne, Ontario from August 3rd to August 6th.
A highlight of the Event will be a demonstration of the Transas/Alliance navigation bridge simulator and Kongsberg engine room simulator. The simulators will be open to the public at the St. James St. Brendan Hall at 55 Charlotte Street in Port Colborne, Ontario.

An interactive display, the simulators are globally recognized for their technically advanced training capabilities. The Class A full mission ship handling simulator, serving as a classroom trainer, offers a 360-degree view around the horizon, with the latest graphic generation and projection technologies. The virtual ship’s bridge allows a configuration of a variety of vessel types, including lakers and ocean-going vessels. The engine room simulator provides the capability to take the ships power plant and other systems from a cold layup condition alongside to fully loaded at sea. The instructor can then inject over 2000 different faults during the training.

Navigation equipment simulated includes the integration of ARPA/Radar, Electronic Chart Display and Information System (ECDIS), Automatic Identification System (AIS), Gyrocompass System, GMDSS and Autopilot/Steering Controls. Navigation is simulated on Canadian waters and global shipping routes.

Transas is a world-leading developer and supplier of a wide range of software, integrated technology solutions for the marine transportation industry. Alliance Nav is a 100% Canadian owned company representing Transas in Canada for almost fifteen years.

Algoma Central Corporation is actively seeking officer candidates for training/employment positions on their domestic bridge and engine room teams. The demonstration of the Transas/Alliance simulator is an initiative which is expected to create an awareness of the rewarding career potential within the Corporation. There will be engineering and navigation Cadets from Georgian on hand to discuss the programs.

Hours for simulator:
Friday August 3 through Monday August 6, 2012: 10 am to 4 pm.
