COSCO Shipping Ports opens Center of Excellence with Navis

COSCO Shipping Ports Limited (CSP) has announced a new partnership with Navis, a part of Cargotec Corporation, which will see the companies jointly run a new Center of Excellence (CoE) to support implementation projects of Navis systems across CSP’s portfolio of assets, as well as ongoing optimisation of CSP’s infrastructure.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The centre will deliver dedicated Navis and CSP resources for N4 terminal operating system (TOS) roll-outs to allow CSP to implement the projects itself, shortening the timeline to deliver services through dedicated onsite and remote resources.

Over time, the CoE is expected to transfer tasks currently executed onsite in projects to remote operations, including base configuration, test support, automated testing, and code extensions.

N4 will be deployed as the sole standard TOS across the CSP portfolio, allowing the companies to  automate business process testing of software releases against CSP requirements. The CoE will create a CSP standard delivery methodology to support this, with training based on Navis STACK Academy programmes and using a CSP curriculum and certification used to build up a team of experts within CSP.

The partners say that the centre will also explore the use of a multi-facility setup, for small terminals without on-premise hardware.

“Our partnership with Navis and the CoE is critical for the multi-facility setup of N4 that is already underway – providing one central solution for all terminals within our corporate infrastructure,” said Zhang Wei, vice chairman and managing director of COSCO Shipping Ports.

“With Navis’ help, we’ll create a standardised delivery method based on their years of experience as the leading TOS in the market and key takeaways from the hundreds of N4 implementations that they have successfully executed.”

“With a scalable and repeatable approach, global experience backing the CoE and supplemental regional teams, CSP is well positioned to bring N4 live across our network and improve overall operational efficiency.”{/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.
