POOLE, UK – The latest version of K-Sim DP, a dynamic positioning (DP) maneuvering simulator from Kongsberg Maritime, has received the Class A certification from Det Norske Veritas (DNV). This makes it compliant with the highest DNV standard for DP simulators according to Standard of Certification of Maritime Simulators number 2.14 (January 2011).
K-Sim DP Manoeuvring is the most advanced DP simulator yet developed by Kongsberg Maritime. It is built on the same technology platform as the K-Sim Offshore simulator (previously known as the KONGSBERG Offshore Vessel Simulator) and can provide realistic and relevant DP training in various simulated conditions and environments.
The new simulator is configured with a dual redundant DP system and a 240° or wider visual scene. It includes a fully integrated power management system and is delivered with standard DP reference systems such as Artemis, Hydroacoustic Position Reference, DPS, and DARPS. FanBeam and RADius position reference systems are available as options.
K-Sim DP includes an extensive Instructor system to design realistic scenarios and to introduce faults and alarm settings throughout an entire training exercise. Recording and replay of all simulation exercises in addition to objective assessment, allow the students to build competence and to be prepared for both daily and emergency situations that might occur in real life.
