Polaris in Mexican R&D facility

Kongsberg Maritime reports that the Instituto Mexicano del Transporte (IMT) is using its Polaris bridge simulator at the research facility it opened in August in Queretaro.

Ordered in April 2013, the multi-purpose simulator accommodates different bridge console configurations, instrumentation arrangements, hydrodynamic ship models and initial exercise areas covering navigable waters and adjacent shore lines for the ports of Lazaro Cardenas, Manzanillo, and Veracruz.

“The simulator is vital for us to provide research grade services in Mexico related to port and coastal area research and development such as coastal structures, hydrodynamics, sediment transport, field studies and port development studies,” said IMT's Miguel Montoya, manager of the new simulation facility.

Tristan Ruiz Lang, coordinator of Port Engineering and Geospatial Systems, IMT, added: “This is a very flexible simulator installation that offers the ability to function as a wide variety of vessels including naval ships, merchant deep-draught, shallow-draught, and small boats, all of which can be simulated in harbour project development scenarios.”

“Any waterway, any vessel, can now be developed here in Mexico."
