Kongsberg introduces latest cargo sim model

Kongsberg Maritime has released its latest K-Sim Cargo simulator model, SCC-II, based on a Suezmax crude oil carrier with 12 cargo tanks and two slop tanks.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new simulator model offers integrated, real-time exercises based on actual ship specifications and performance data on liquid cargo handling operations.

The model is delivered with a new Integrated Automation System (IAS) to replicate Cargo Control Room (CCR) operations. The CCR can be represented by different combinations of interactive mimic panels, operational panels or consoles or desktop stations, allowing it to be laid out according to the specific requirements of the training facility.

It also contains a Closed Circuit TV system with three camera angles providing a view from both manifolds, and a third camera with a view from the jetty to give students a wider range of visualisations in training.

The SCC-II model is equipped with an inert gas plant to provide training on cleaning the flue gas and replacing combustible gases in the cargo tanks with low or non-flammable gases. The pump configuration represents a typical crude oil carrier with three cargo pumps, two ballast pumps, three oil/gas separators, a stripping pump and ejector.

Kongsberg Maritime’s load calculator, K-Load, is also integrated in the model. The system uses the various tank levels and corresponding specific gravity and calculates hydrostatic conditions, intact stability, longitudinal strain, tank content and damage stability. It can also produce ullage and loading reports.

The new model, which is certified by DNV GL, is already in use by Buskerud and Vestfold University College in Norway and TMS Cardiff Training Centre in Athens, Greece.{/mprestriction}
