Kongsberg agrees deal to outfit Simwave facility

Kongsberg Digital and Simwave have agreed a contract for what Kongsberg says is one of its most extensive maritime simulator deliveries to date, to take place at Simwave’s facilities in the Netherlands.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Located in Barendrecht, Simwave is a new Maritime Centre of Excellence which aims to make training technologies available to maritime professionals and specialised applied research projects.

Kongsberg will act as the sole simulation technology supplier for the new facility, which is designed to deliver ‘maritime simulation as a service’ on a white label, pay-as-you-go basis. Simwave will also partner with Kongsberg Digital to develop maritime training systems to be added to Kongsberg’s newly launched open ecosystem, kognifai.

Simwave’s facility will provide customers with full access to the simulator park on their own terms, providing a platform for customers to train and assess crew, investigate projects and promote services by using the simulators customised to their own requirements. This includes users’ own 3D mathematical ship and environment models, based on K-Sim technology.

Simwave experts will be available to adapt the configuration to the exact requirements of the training programme or research project if required, with the facilities to be made available 24 hours a day.

The Kongsberg simulator delivery is due to be completed by the end of September 2017. The full scope of supply covers multiple full-mission and part-task simulators for ship’s bridge and engine room operations.

The contract also includes a five year Long Term System Support Programme (LTSSP) including support and access to technology updates, in addition to a planned mid-life upgrade at end of the LTSSP.

“Kongsberg’s world class simulators will allow us to offer an integrated ship system approach to training, where all aspects of vessel operation are included,” said Joost van Ree, co-founder, Simwave.

“While technology is vital, the Simwave difference is that we are providing complete flexibility for customers to train or research in a way that exactly meets their needs.”{/mprestriction}

  • Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy takes delivery of Wärtsilä Cloud Simulation solution

    Wärtsilä has successfully delivered its brand-new Cloud Simulation solution to Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy. Comprising a combination of cloud-based solutions, including navigational, engine room and liquid cargo handling simulators, Wärtsilä is the first company to offer class-approved cloud-based simulation technology to the maritime industry.

    The online installation was deployed in early July, allowing the Academy to continue providing its training despite ongoing social distancing and travel restrictions.

    Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy is a maritime training provider in the region, which is now powered by Wärtsilä Voyage technology. The addition of the online installations of NTPro and TechSim will broaden the simulation-based training offering available at the Academy.

    Cloud Simulation technology takes simulation beyond the boundaries of the physical classroom, to provide location and device independence, and to deliver simulation-based training wherever, whenever, and however it is needed by the user.

    Remote access to training allows students and instructors to reach various Wärtsilä Voyage simulation models on their personal devices, away from the classroom and without the need for specific Wärtsilä software. Both the TechSim and NTPRO platforms in the cloud provide a classroom configuration with trainer and multiple student stations for familiar instructor-led training.

    “We are excited to be at the leading edge of this technology in the maritime industry and enable trainees to acquire a wide range of navigational and engineering skills, without the need to physically attend the training centre. By having remote access to the simulation library and any classroom-based exercise, instructors can easily manage the application and deliver the training,” commented Torsten Büssow, director, Wärtsilä Voyage.

    "We are very pleased to have this next-generation of blended-learning solutions delivered by Wärtsilä Voyage. The bespoke training that this solution allows to deliver will undeniably enhance the training experience of our students. The Wärtsilä Voyage distance learning application will surely open up many new training opportunities inside and outside the physical classroom”, said Capt. Clive Hotham, head of Marine Short Courses and Simulator, Abu Dhabi Maritime Academy.
