 A total of 26 Kongsberg Maritime Neptune Engine Room Simulators (ERS) and
 Cargo Handling Simulators (CHS) have received new Det Norske Veritas (DNV)
 Statement of Compliance in January 2008, according to new standards laid
 out in DNV Class A - Standard for Certification of Maritime Simulators No.
 2.14 October 2007, which is based on the requirements of STCW Convention,
 Regulation I/12.

 the simulators include an appropriate level of physical and behavioural
 realism in accordance with recognised training and assessment objectives.

 Kongsberg Maritime is the first maritime simulation supplier to be
 certified to this level. The new Approvals, which are valid
 through 21/01/2013, were awarded to Kongsberg Maritime's
 Simulators, with 18 ERS and 8 CHS achieving the stringent new Performance
 standards that were introduced in October 2007.
