With support of “Latvian Shipping Company” a laboratory for navigation studies has been opened

october 29, 2015 / News

On Wednesday, October 27, in the Latvian Maritime Academy a laboratory for navigation studies was opened. The Latvian Maritime Academy would like to thank in particular Chairman of the Board of “Latvian Shipping Company” Robert Kirkup, who participated in the opening ceremony, and the company “Latvian Shipping Company” for support provided to create this laboratory, which is a part of the international project “EfficienSea 2”.

There are six training areas in the laboratory named after the ships of the fleet of “Latvian Shipping Company” – “Ance”, “Kandava”, “Piltene”, “Usma”, “Kazdanga” and “Latgale”. The areas have been arranged so that students have a feeling that they stand on the ship’s navigation bridge.

The laboratory uses the remote information exchange system “Maritime Cloud” providing a new generation electronic mapping software, electronic navigation solutions, automatic reporting and emergency response systems. The laboratory consists of six ship’s bridges where all necessary equipment is available, including electronic navigation solutions reducing the risk of accidents. During testing, ships can do tasks together or individually.
