In a brand new 19,000 square foot Maritime and Industrial Training Centre in New Orleans, Louisiana, the Delgado Fire and Industrial School offers industry leading training by combining Transas and XVR simulation technology. Delgado is the first training center in the world to deploy XVR Incident Command simulation solutions in conjunction with their extensive suite of Transas full mission, part task and classroom marine simulators. The center will be attended by 10,000 students each year. Rick Schwab, Senior Director of the facility, commented "We have worked with Transas for nearly fifteen years now, and have always been able to rely on them to support our programs and deliver the new technologies that we need to solve our clients training needs. When our team was introduced to XVR Simulation by Transas, we immediately knew that it was what we needed to take our Incident Command training to the next level. Transas and XVR provide a combination of products that together can expand the realism and effectiveness of maritime emergency and crisis response training." Transas and XVR Simulation are excited by this first major joint project deployment by the two market sector leaders since January's announcement of their new strategic cooperation. The two companies explore the technical integration of their products for a range of training applications. "The input of experienced experts, such as the team at Delgado, who are thoroughly familiar with industry needs, is a vital component of producing complete solutions that can provide positive contribution to maritime safety, a cornerstone of Transas' THESIS concept," mentions Neil Bennett, Vice President of Sales and Customer Support for Transas in the Americas region.
