MITAGS to Provide Ship Modeling to Pilot Groups

Friday, January 20, 2006
The Maritime Institute of Technology and Graduate Studies (MITAGS) and the Pacific Maritime Institute (PMI), announced that MITAGS/PMI have been contracted to provide ship modeling for three major pilot groups. The Pilots’ Association for the Bay and River Delaware has contracted MITAGS/PMI to develop a hydrodynamic model of the “Stena Vision Class” Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCC), including a simulated visual database for the entrance of the Delaware River to Sun Oil Dock near the Philadelphia Shipyards. The model and database are an integrated part of a comprehensive training program that has been created for all new Delaware Pilots for each class of vessel. The course will also cover advanced control systems, such as Azipod and Kamewa. The Chilean Pilots, in conjunction with the Centro de Instruccion y Capacitacion Maritima (CIMAR) School in Valparaiso, Chile, has contracted with MITAGS/PMI to provide advanced ship familiarization training using a hydrodynamic model of the Queen Mary II. The project will include a full visual database of the Beagle Channel and adjoining straits, which was developed by CIMAR. The Queen Mary II is scheduled to arrive in Chilean waters beginning in 2006. MITAGS/PMI also completed a full-mission ship simulation study for the Bermuda Government’s Department of Marine and Port Services and Celebrity Cruise Lines, LLC. The study included advanced modeling of the cruise vessel Century and Hamilton Harbor, Bermuda.
