Modal Training centre to install wide-ranging simulator package

Modal Training, a UK provider of integrated multimodal logistics training, has invested in a package of ship, offshore vessel, engine room and radar simulators from Kongsberg Maritime for its new £7 million centre of excellence in Immingham, set to open in September 2016.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The simulators include a detailed 360-degree model of the Humber estuary on the east coast of Northern England, and will be used to offer training that replicates the working environment for a wide range of maritime roles, including bridge crews, navigators, maritime engineers and Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) operators.

Each part of the simulator system can be operated independently, or be interconnected to provide full vessel operation exercises for an entire crew.

“We’ve listened to leading companies from across the maritime, offshore and renewables industries, and we are in the process of developing an extensive suite of equipment designed to meet their real-world training requirements exactly,” said Patrick Henry, CEO of Modal Training.

A Class A full mission K-Sim Offshore vessel simulator with forward and aft bridge, configured with a DP2 dynamic positioning system and anchor handling vessel hardware, will be delivered, along with two Class B K-Sim Navigation ship’s bridge simulators with one configured as a workboat/tug bridge.

Modal has also invested in a K-Sim DP Class C desktop simulator system for dynamic positioning training, and a desktop K-Sim Navigation configured for ECDIS radar training for up to six students.

The engine room set-up is equipped with a full mission K-Sim Engine simulator and a desktop engine room simulator. A K-Sim VTS operator simulator system completes the new equipment line-up.{/mprestriction}
