STC Orders Simulation Suite

Wednesday, April 20, 2005
The Shipping and Transport College (STC) in Rotterdam has awarded Kongsberg Maritime with a contract for the supply and installation of an extensive new suite of engine and navigation simulators for its new premises in Rotterdam.

STC is the largest maritime training institution in Holland and one of the world leaders in educational and training programs for operational and management functions in shipping, transport and logistics. The institution has 3500 students and offers over 2000 different course modules. In September this year, the organization will move into new seaside premises in Rotterdam, which boast a 2,300 sq. m. state-of-the-art simulator center.

Based on a MAN B&W 5l90MC, the high-end operational engine room simulator replicates a very large crude carrier with a slow speed turbo charged diesel engine and is modeled with a fixed controllable propeller. The electrical plant includes 2 diesel generators, one turbo generator/motor and one 180 kW emergency generator. The steam plant includes D-type steam boiler, exhaust boiler, four cargo turbines, ballast turbine and condensing and feed water systems. All control room and bridge panels are included.

This is one of the most sophisticated engine room simulators developed by Kongsberg Maritime and includes the new BigView, interactive mimic screen. The BigView makes familiarization of the simulated engine plant far more efficient and exciting compared to existing methods and provides a unique overview of the events.
