KONGSBERG, Norway – Kongsberg Maritime reports that the new Haugesund Simulatorcenter has ordered a range of offshore simulators for delivery next year. Kongsberg says it will provide a 360° view offshore vessel simulator that connects to several specialized task simulators.
The offshore vessel simulator includes a main bridge with forward DNV class A and aft bridge configuration, plus is equipped with anchor handling and Dynamic Positioning (DP) functionalities. Integrated with the Kongsberg K-Pos DP21, the offshore vessel simulator fulfills the Nautical Institute's DP training requirements.
Also included in the delivery is an assisting offshore vessel simulator that can be configured as a second anchor handling vessel and a Kongsberg offshore crane simulator.
The crane simulator will be interfaced to a real deck-mounted knuckle-boom subsea crane for lifting and subsea operations, and to a wire-luffing lattice pedestal crane for platform lifting operations.
Combined with Kongsberg Maritime's subsidiary GlobalSim Inc., the crane simulator will offer the possibility of team training in complex lifting operations, as well as 'stand alone' training for crane operators. For complex underwater operations, the offshore vessel simulator will also be interfaced with a GRL DeepTouch ROV simulator.
