It has been announced that the Carnival Corporation Center for Simulator and Maritime Training (CSMART) in Almere, The Netherlands, was commissioned on 14 July. The CSMART is said to be the largest facility in terms of training capacity and utilises the most innovative technology provided by Transas.
The Transas Integrated Full Mission Simulation Academy equipment implemented at the CSMART is a significant innovation that moves the capability of the most complex challenge to maritime safety, it is understood. This is the
result of almost two years’ intensive R&D investment. Carnival recognised that a step-change was required in the way seafarers are trained to improve safety at sea. The interaction of human factors on board cruise vessels are some of the most complex in the maritime industry.
