Filipino contract for Kongsberg

Kongsberg Maritime reports that it has won a contract to provide simulators to another training facility in the Philippines.

The Headway Seacrest Maritime Foundation Inc, in Cebu City, has ordered a ‘Full Picture’ package including ship’s bridge, engine room and cargo handling simulators, and instructor training. All the equipment is to be installed by late September.

For navigation and ship handling training, a Full Mission 270 degrees Horizontal Field Of View Ship’s Bridge Simulator (SBS) will be set up alongside a desktop version with integrated ECDIS and GMDSS simulators. Both Full Mission and desktop simulators are based on the Polaris technology platform.

The Engine Room Simulator (ERS) will also be accompanied by a desktop version. Both will be based on the Neptune simulator platform, as the Cargo Handling Simulator (CHS) will.

The contract includes training for Headway Seacrest instructors at the Institute of Willem Barentz, in the Netherlands.

The Cebu facility has also signed for Kongsberg’s Long Term Simulator Support Program (LTSSP), which provides support and access to simulator upgrades within a fixed period.

“Headway Seacrest was already aware that our simulator offering could support its training programme for cadets and officers and its plans to establish an Offshore Academy,” explains Tor Hellman Kristoffersen, area sales manager, Kongsberg Maritime.

“After being part of our user conference in Singapore in October 2012 and mixing with other leading maritime trainers, Headway Seacrest was convinced that we were well positioned to provide not only the equipment, but the long term support and expertise they required.”

Kongsberg Maritime says that it now supplies simulators and support to seven customers in the Cebu region and that Headway Seacrest is its second customer in the Philippines to choose an LTSSP.
