STAVANGER, Norway -- Kongsberg Maritime is using ONS 2008 to launch its next generation Anchor Handling Simulator (AHS).

Currently in development, the new AHS is scheduled for release before the end of 2008 and is being developed in parallel with a bespoke AHS for Maersk Supply Service, following a cooperation agreement that was signed in February 2008.

The new AHS fulfils all training objectives of both the anchor handling vessel navigator and the winch operator, says Kongsberg.

It also offers the possibility to simulate specific anchor handling operations prior to them taking place and to develop safety procedures and review them after the procedure is introduced in real life, the company says.
