Simulator package installed at Indonesian Maritime Training Centre

Kongsberg Maritime reports that it has completed the delivery and installation of a set of new bridge simulators for Indonesia’s Ministry of Transportation.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new simulators at the Ministry of Transportation’s Maritime Training Centre, located at its headquarters in Jakarta, will be used for the assessment of Indonesian seafarers applying for seagoing certification, for local and international operations.

In addition to training of new cadets, the Ministry of Transportation will also use its new simulator suite for re-certification of local seafarers, due to the increasing number of vessels being built for transporting goods around the archipelagic state of Indonesia.

Following deployment of the system, Kongsberg’s K-Sim Polaris simulator will now form the basis for the Indonesian ‘Certificate of Competency’ assessment, with testing to be carried out using the included DNV GL A-compliant Full Mission Bridge simulator and ten part task simulators.

The deal with the Indonesian Ministry of Transportation also includes future migration to Kongsberg’s new generation K-Sim Navigation bridge simulator technology platform, part of a five-year Long Term Simulator Support Programme (LTSSP). New simulator models and exercise areas will additionally be developed as part of this programme.

“The contract reflects the growing importance of having a realistic simulated vessel navigation and communications environment to support the quality of assessment,” said Asraf Ibrahim, Area Sales Manager, Kongsberg Maritime.

“Ultimately, our simulators can reduce operational costs for the training and assessment organisation, and the shipowners, while improving maritime safety and efficiency by supporting seafarers to work with more knowledge and proficiency.”{/mprestriction}
