A new maritime simulator facility has been opened in Le Havre, France, with French President François Hollande attending the inauguration of the facility at École Nationale Supérieure Maritime (ENSM).

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new building is designed around a ‘ship’ configuration, and features a range of ship’s bridge and engine room simulators from Kongsberg Maritime. The simulator delivery contract was won in a tender in June, with the system delivered in September.

The integrated training package includes a full mission K-Sim Engine simulator system built over two floors, in addition to four full mission ship’s bridge simulators based on Kongsberg Maritime’s K-Sim Navigation technology.

The ship’s bridge systems include a DNV Class A bridge, integrated with a K-Pos Dynamic Positioning system and another bridge specially designed for tugging and inland waterway scenarios. Interdepartmental team training can be conducted through the integration of the ship’s bridge and engine room simulators.

“This is a significant investment in simulation technology and will ensure our students are trained to the highest standards. Our requirement was for a total integrated solution which Kongsberg Maritime is able to supply with its advanced technology platform that will provide realistic and relevant training in various simulated conditions and environments,” said Jean-Pierre Clostermann, international development, ENSM.{/mprestriction}
