Kongsberg Maritime has been selected by Fideicomiso de Formación y Capacitación para el Personal de la Marina Mercante Nacional (FIDENA) in Mexico to provide a number of offshore and dynamic positioning (DP) simulators.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}FIDENA is the educational institution in charge of managing, organising and developing the formal education of all seafarers in Mexico. The offshore simulators will be installed at the Marine Education Centre in Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche, and will be used to train personnel operating in the Gulf of Mexico and elsewhere.

The installation includes Class B and C dynamic positioning simulators, as well as Kongsberg’s K-Sim Offshore Simulator with forward and aft bridges for training on ship handling and manoeuvring, anchor handling and DP Class B. 

The K-Sim is also equipped with bridge consoles to accommodate different vessel types, in addition to hydrodynamic ship models and area databases covering navigable waters in key offshore operating areas.

“FIDENA’s selection of Kongsberg Maritime simulators is an important endorsement of our technology,” said Fabio Florez, Kongsberg Maritime Simulation’s area sales manager.

“Kongsberg Maritime has a strong market presence in the global offshore industry, with installed equipment on more than 17,000 vessels worldwide. This accumulated expertise provides us with a tremendous pool of knowledge that has been effectively transferred to our simulator systems, ensuring they provide highly realistic, accurate depictions of offshore and maritime operations.”{/mprestriction}
