VLCC Cargo Handling Simulator Launched

Monday, July 11, 2005
Kongsberg Maritime has released a new Neptune Cargo Handling Simulator model. The new model is called VLCC-Double Hull.

The new Double-Hull model is developed following 20 years of the Kongsberg Maritime single-hull model, which has been delivered to a number of training facilities world wide. It provides a much longed for tool for training in very complex full scale cargo, ballast and cleaning operations simultaneously.

Several enhancements over the previous single-hull model have been made to provide a simulation model suitable for modern training, many of which have been directly requested by customers.

These include the possibility to 'remove' the terminal whilst underway, and the ability to connect proper loading arms.
