The Artiglio Nautical Institute is equipped with a simulator based on Transas software, configured and installed by Upgrade, to allow the training of highly qualified personnel, potentially 24/7.
«Transas – Comments Emanuele Pitto, Sales director and Project Manager – is the manufacturer of the simulator Software and Upgrade Srl is the company authorized to install the hardware and promote courses. For us it is a great reason of pride to have developed this project being the most important in Italy»
The school manager Nadia Lombardi argues that the simulator installed «will allow to navigate virtually anywhere, in all weather conditions and in all hours of the day and night. Students can make virtual trips around the world and dock in many different ports as: Genoa, Livorno, Strait of Messina, Venice, English Channel, Strait of Gibraltar, Istanbul, Singapore, Rotterdam, New York, Los Angeles and many more.»
