BMT simulator adds new features

BMT Ship & Coastal Dynamics, part of BMT Group, has updated its marine navigation and manoeuvring simulator REMBRANDT, with version 6 adding separate controls for setting wind, wave and swell wave parameters.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The company says that independent control of these features will allow for the examination of more realistic scenarios, which should be of particular relevance for offshore simulations, as well as certain critical port approach manoeuvres.  Wind shielding is also now available.

In addition, REMBRANDT v6 supports the direct import of high resolution terrain data (LIDAR data) which will allow users to automatically create detailed visual scenes.

“These new and improved features have further elevated an already high end and globally respected simulator. It was important for us to look at delivering a significantly broader and more capable tool that will better support our diverse range of clients, enhancing the value this simulation aid can offer them in helping to achieve their operational goals,” said Paul Morter, global sales manager for REMBRANDT.

“An important factor when berthing at an offshore structure is the shielding effect it creates – as the visiting ship comes into the ‘lee’ of the structure, the magnitude of the prevailing wind, waves and current can be significantly reduced; REMBRANDT V6 can now realistically represent this effect in real time simulations.” 

In addition to its newly established simulator complex at its UK offices, BMT says that it will also shortly open a new simulator centre of excellence in Indonesia.{/mprestriction}
