Towage

The NAUTIS Towage functionality and vessel package allows captains to experience and train the handling of tugboats with various propulsion systems during towage operations. The simulator includes an easy-to-use set of instructor tools for preparing and controlling manoeuvring exercises, multi-tug operations, ship manoeuvring parameters and vector tugs. 

Training applications 

The module is perfect for training both captains who assist in navigating larger vessels into harbours, as well as those operating tugboats. Towage and salvage companies as well as private training centres make use of our simulators in order to prepare their students and staff for any possible scenario. Training scenarios include navigation, vessel handling and manoeuvring of conventional and azimuth propulsion systems, assisting ships / towing / rig moves, equipment familiarisation and joint multi-vessel exercises.  

A library of tugboats with different propulsions is available, including but not limited to harbour tugs, ASD tugs and ocean tugs and a variety of towing lines. All include realistic tug-ship interaction forces at the bow and stern of cargo vessels, considering both hull and propulsion interactions. Additionally, the simulator has realistic tug friction characteristics when pushing ships and realistic direct and indirect towing characteristics. Advanced functionalities like adjustable interaction forces, an advanced rope dynamics system including line elasticity and snap force, the option to visualise all forces as vectors, bollard pull visibility for instructors, instructor control over towing, and mooring & anchor winches are included. 

An essential skill needed for piloting or directing large vessels is mutual communication. Pilots need to be fully aware of what is happening at all times, while simultaneously communicating to everyone involved in order to guarantee a smooth and, above all, safe operation. Our simulator setups enable you to train in such circumstances, while recording everything that happens, giving you the chance to evaluate any decision made in detail during the debriefing phase. 

Configurations

NAUTIS comes with a range of scalable setups:

NAUTIS Towage Simulator

  • Desktop setup – a portable and affordable solution for Tug/OSV handling & manoeuvring training.

TOWAGE FMBS

  • Full Mission setup – an advanced solution for realistic virtual tug training on board of an actual Tug/OSV ship bridge replica.
