Kongsberg Maritime is supplying the National Defence University of Malaysia with its K-Sim Engine simulation platform, designed for training personnel in a range of engine room operations.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new contract will see Konsberg deliver 20 K-Sim Engine desktop simulators connected to an interactive ‘BigView’ system, which displays model process diagrams on HD monitors including 3D pop-up display for vital parts of the engine room.

The platform will also integrate with the K-Sim Polaris bridge simulator system that Kongsberg delivered to the University at the end of last year, allowing for full vessel training where both simulation platforms interact. The K-Sim Engine can also be used for economy and optimisation studies to improve vessel performance.

“We’re delighted to have been selected by the University in this competitive tender, especially as it comes so soon after the installation of our K-Sim Polaris simulator in December 2014,” said Tone-Merete Hansen, global sales manager, Kongsberg Maritime, Simulation.

“The National Defence University of Malaysia’s decision to integrate K-Sim Engine with K-Sim Polaris reflects a growing trend with training institutes to offer CRM(Crew Resource Management) training, where students get a much broader understanding of operating a vessel, in addition to in-depth teaching in their specific areas of responsibility.”{/mprestriction}
