published on 26 April 2021 159

In preparation for future heavy load transports with the heavy load pontoon "BHV INNOVATION", BVT Chartering und Logistics GmbH were guests in the NAUTITEC ship simulator together with the Bremerhaven harbour pilots, the Weser river pilots and with captains from the tug shipping company Boluda Towage. Various nautical manoeuvres in the port and lock area and on the Weser were simulated under almost realistic conditions.

The ship simulator of NAUTITEC GmbH, Leer is one of the most modern ship simulators in Europe. "The team around NAUTITEC managing director Georg Haase did a very good job," said Jörn Haumüller from BVT Chartering and Logistics. "Pilots and captains also performed safe and good manoeuvres. All in all, a very successful training day in Leer to meet the growing demands in the heavy goods market in the future."
