Laboratory for navigation studies

Laboratory for navigation studies

Practical skill and knowledge level of the maritime students is important to the "Latvian Shipping Company" (LSC), therefor, with the support of LSC on Wednesday, October 27, 2015, a new laboratory for navigation studies was opened at the The Latvian Maritime Academy as part of the international project “EfficienSea 2”.

There are six training areas in the laboratory named after the ships of the fleet of LSC – “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.
