Port of Marseilles Sets up Simulator Training

Tuesday, November 20, 2007
The Port of Marseilles Authority has set up a simulator-based international training center in Fos for crane and equipment operators handling cargo such as containers and dry bulks. Responding to internal and external demand for competence training, the facility is currently focused on initial and refresher courses for PMA personnel but will be available to outside clients from next February. Training is largely based on a $2.3m latest generation simulator developed in association with Global-SIM. Featuring eight projectors, a 7-meter screen and an operator’s cabin, the system uses 3D images to replicate working scenarios for various equipment, weather conditions, vessel types and incidents. Typical training durations have been reduced from several months to 18-20 days because there is now no need to wait until actual equipment can be spared from service.
