Norwegian Training Center – Manila to get new simulators

The Norwegian Shipowners’ Association (NSA) has chosen Kongsberg Maritime to upgrade the simulation facilities at the Norwegian Training Center – Manila (NTC-M), in a deal signed at Nor-Shipping 2015 in Norway.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The contract covers the delivery of new simulators and upgrades to existing simulators across all primary training areas including navigation & ship handling, dynamic positioning (DP), engine room and cargo handling.

The simulator delivery will also be supported by a six-year Long Term System Support Programme (LTSSP).

Funding was secured through NSA and 19 of its members and partners; DNK (Warrisk), DOF, Eidesvik, Fred Olsen, GCRieber, Grieg, Havila , Høegh Auto Liners, Høegh LNG, Johan Jørgen Ugland, Kristian Gerhard Jebsen, Klaveness, Knutsen OAS, Odfjell ASA, Olympic, Solstad, Solvang, Teekay and Thome.

NTC-M was established in 1990 by the NSA in order to provide relevant training for Filipino seafarers serving on its members’ ships.

"The contract with Kongsberg Maritime represents a significant investment in support of our commitment to training in the Philippines," said Sturla Henriksen, CEO at the NSA.

"Norway has a global fleet of almost 1,800 vessels. We aim to offer the same level of training as available in Norway to more of our crew. This facility is an important step in that direction, and Filipino seafarers make up a significant portion of crews on Norwegian vessels."

"With new Kongsberg Maritime simulators we will be positioned to provide very high quality training across a range of disciplines, helping to secure Norway’s position as a leading player in international shipping."{/mprestriction}
