Kongsberg Maritime has completed delivery and installation of a new K-Sim Polaris ship-handling simulator for the Cebu Reliable and Excellent Seafarers Training Center (CREST) in the Philippines.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The CREST delivery consists of a full mission, DNV GL class A K-Sim Polaris ship’s bridge simulator with 270 degrees of visual view and Kongsberg K-Bridge consoles, in addition to three GMDSS/ECDIS Radar Trainers.

The equipment includes a built-in assessment functionality, which CREST will use for practical assessment and examination of officers as a mandatory requirement to receive a licence.

“K-Sim Polaris is a strong match for our officer training needs,” said Capt. Emerico B. Gepilano, vice president, CREST.

“The new simulator will support the development of our course offering and help to enhance our assessment processes, while the availability of Kongsberg Maritime as a local service provider was also a key advantage when choosing our new simulation supplier.”{/mprestriction}
