"Again and again," says Schottel, "crews are faced with situations where a fast response is essential – both during their normal work and even more so in emergencies, such as sudden evasive maneuvers or system failures. The correct response in difficult situations must be learnt in such a way as to allow instant recall. Simulators have a decisive role to play in learning the correct sequence of measures to be taken – for greater safety and efficiency."

In fact we are optimistic that other OEMs will provide  us with NOL accreditation in the coming months following further validation trials we are completing" said Rafael Teodoro, Chevron Marine's Global Marine Marketing Manager
