The simulator, supplied by Kongsberg Maritime, is part of a 1300m2 simulator park offering integrated training on offshore vessel operations as well as mission planning applications.

The Offshore Vessel Simulator includes an interface to a range of task simulators for team training of offshore operations.

Also included is an assisting offshore vessel simulator that can be configured as a second anchor handling vessel for team training of anchor handling operations, and an offshore crane simulator which has been supplied by the Kongsberg subsidiary, GlobalSim.

All simulated operations can be carried out individually as well as in an integrated environment where all simulated variables interact with each other within the scenario.

“Integration is critical to improving safety and competence for hazardous offshore operations,” explains Rune Johansen, director, SimSea.

“Ours is perhaps the most integrated Offshore Vessel Simulator in operation so we are able to provide a unique platform for highly realistic team training that covers all aspects of offshore vessel operation either as standalone modules or as a fully integrated training exercise.”
