It provides complete resource management training processes of CARGO , ballast and auxiliary systems with either through the integration of the vessel and terminal models. Improved Graphic Interface an integrated system (terminal and vessel) or standalone The system can be utilised either in the classroom mode (terminal or vessel). The integration of the two systems Transas CARGO simulators are designed for the education with participants interacting, or in the standalone mode results in the added benefit of complete team training of operators who perhaps have little engineering back- for individual training.

Elegant system layout screens allow multiple views to be displayed on dual monitors, presenting trainees with an enhanced overview of their systems on a minimal number of screens. System flow graphics are easily disabled for training more experi- enced operators used to the presentation of only standard instruments normally available onboard.
