Simulation model of world’s largest bulk carrier developed

Transas Marine has developed a ship model of a 400,000 dwt Very Large Ore Carrier (VLOC), the largest bulk carrier in the world, for Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement (BSM).

The simulation model was created for the BSM Training Centre for Advanced Learning, located in India, using the visualisation engine in Transas’ Navigational Simulator and modelling effects from Transas’ Virtual Ship Yard modelling software.

The behaviour of the VLOC model is based on an extensive set of actual manoeuvring data provided by BSM.

“Training with this VLOC model will vastly improve understanding and confidence of the officers who plan to serve on this category of ships,” said Ravi Budhraja, BSM Training Centre for Advanced Learning.

In June 2011 Transas Marine was chosen by Telaccount Overseas as a partner for BSM’s ECDIS retrofit programme, and is now creating dedicated virtual exercise areas for BSM training purposes.
