Tromsø Maritime School Chooses Kongsberg Maritime

Tuesday, July 12, 2011

Tromsø Maritime School has selected Kongsberg Maritime to provide Polaris simulators for navigation and Dynamic Positioning training. The established Northern Norway training facility has ordered an extensive suite of new simulators following an open tender that saw leading simulator developer Kongsberg Maritime come out on top in terms of the proposed technical solution, customer service program and customer references.

The scope of supply, which has been designed to enable Tromsø Maritime School to meet strict new Nautical Institute guidelines for Dynamic Positioning operator training and certification, includes a Polaris ship’s bridge simulator (DNV class B), 3 x smaller Polaris ship’s bridge simulators, 4 x KONGSBERG K-Pos DP Basic Trainers (limited-task simulators), and a DP 2 Advanced Trainer (multi-task simulators), which will be interfaced with the main Polaris ships bridge simulator for maneuvering and DP advanced training.

The new Polaris Ship’s Bridge Simulator will make it possible to offer a wide range of training possibilities, including ice-navigation and oil spills emergency scenarios. Both of these aspects are geographically relevant to Tromsø Maritime School, as it will be able to support advanced training for oil & gas companies and organizations exploring and developing in Northern Norway and arctic waters. Additionally, Tromsø Maritime School’s existing Kongsberg Maritime Neptune Engine Room simulator can be integrated with the Polaris navigation and DP training simulators to enable environmental research and team training.

Kongsberg Maritime has signed a 10 year contract with Tromsø Maritime School. Delivery, installation, training and warranty are expected to take place during the first three years. For the remaining seven years, Kongsberg Maritime will provide on-going technical support & maintenance.
