The LTSSP is in support of a K-Sim Offshore Crane simulation system, which features digital twins of HMC’s semisubmersible construction vessels, ships, and barges. HMC’s simulation center is at the company’s headquarters in Leiden, the Netherlands. The simulation system was installed in 2015.
Kongsberg Digital will continue to maintain the simulators, from hardware upgrades through to additional ship models, library objects, and equipment models. The simulation system is used to confirm feasibility of new methods and equipment and to optimize efficiency and safety performance for current execution methods.
Jan Pieter de Vries, Manager Simulations and Visual Products, HMC Academy, said: “By renewing this LTSSP we are ensuring that our clients, offshore crew and project teams continue to benefit from the most advanced simulation-based training and project preparation on the market, simulating real-world scenarios.”
The simulation center includes two offshore crane operator domes and a bridge with K-Sim DP simulator, based on the same Kongsberg Maritime K-Pos DP systems used on HMC’s vessels. Detailed models of Heerema’s semisubmersible crane vessels, heavy-lift vessel, tugs and barges ensure realistic scenarios and enable detailed pre-mission training for heavy-lift projects.
