Under a contract signed on January 6th, 2015, Kongsberg Maritime will deliver a new K-Sim Navigation aft and forward bridge configuration to the College, which is DNV Class B compliant and includes an integrated DP2 simulator. Installation is scheduled for May 2015.

Another contract has also been agreed for an upgrade of all hardware in the College’s existing Kongsberg Polaris ship’s bridge simulators to the K-Sim Navigation platform.

Launched in September 2014, Kongsberg says that K-Sim Navigation features an enhanced physical engine and improved hydrodynamic modelling compared with earlier systems.

“K-Sim Navigation represents a significant upgrade to our simulator facility, enabling us to expand our course offering and make the most of the latest training technology,” says Norvald Kjerstad, professor in nautical science, Aalesund University College.

"We will run courses on our new K-Sim Navigation simulators for students in navigation and DP as well as training courses for external companies. We will soon be positioned to offer the most realistic simulator training available and believe that this will benefit our students and their employers greatly."

In addition to upgrading its simulator facility, the College has also agreed a five year ‘Long Term System Support Program’ (LTSSP) with Kongsberg Maritime, covering any new software or hardware developments.
