Kongsberg Maritime opens simulator centre

Offshore staff

KONGSBERG, Norway – Kongsberg Maritime has opened the Kongsberg offshore vessel simulator at the SimSea AS maritime training centre in Haugesund, Norway. The new SimSea facility is based on a 360° visual Kongsberg offshore vessel simulator with interface to a range of specialized task simulators for team training of complex offshore operations.

Søren Einar Veierland, business manager, Kongsberg Maritime Simulation and Training said: “The Kongsberg offshore vessel simulator at SimSea shifts the focus from single task training to a more holistic approach where crew work together to safely operate a vessel during hazardous operations, such as anchor handling or loading and unloading.

“This method of training supports the on-going efforts of owners and operators to enhance competence for the entire crew. Every aspect of an offshore vessel’s operation has a tangible effect on its safety and efficiency so improving the competence of the entire team through integrated simulation is very important.”
