KONGSBERG, Norway – Ocean Rig UDW Inc. has chosen Kongsberg Maritime to supply an offshore and navigation simulator package to a new training center. The package includes an integrated simulator suite, enabling specific operations and vessel team training.
The new training center comprises two full mission bridge simulators. The K-Sim Offshore simulator is to be equipped like a drillship based on Ocean Rig’s Samsung 96k/Enhanced Saipem 10000 design. In addition, it will be integrated with K-Sim engine room simulator model DE66 drillship and K-Pos Dynamic positioning system, including DP3 backup operation and riser management. The other full mission simulator is designed as a DNV Class A navigation bridge.
Two separate classrooms will also feature K-Sim ECDIS trainers, K-Pos DP Class C, and K-Chief 700 crew trainers for drillships. The K-Sim engine simulator will feature DE-66 drillship and MC 90V models. It will be used in a desktop configuration and on Kongsberg Maritime’s advanced, touchscreen BigView interactive mimic system. All simulators can provide task-specific training or operate as part of an integrated system to provide full vessel training.
