Kongsberg Maritime simulators have been selected for Maersk Training’s new center in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The delivery to Maersk Training Brazil Treinamentos Maritimos LTDA is under a non-exclusive frame agreement signed by Kongsberg Maritime and Maersk Training, which covers supply of simulators and ongoing support for a 10 year period. The Kongsberg Offshore Vessel Simulator at Maersk Training Brazil will be operational in the second quarter 2013.
The simulator package includes the Kongsberg Offshore Vessel Simulator integrated with Kongsberg’s K-Pos Dynamic Positioning Simulator, which will meet The Nautical Institute’s class A requirements. The contract also includes a Long Term Service Support (LTSSP) agreement ensuring delivery of support and new software versions for a five year period.
The Kongsberg Offshore Vessel Simulator is already used by maritime training facilities around the world, including EMAS Academy in Singapore, Superior Energy Services in Houston/Alaska, SimSea in Norway, Lerus Training in Ukraine and Maersk Training in Denmark. During 2013 Maersk Training Brazil, Oceanografia S.A, Mexico and several other training organisations will start using the Konsberg Offshore Vessel Simulator to train crew for demanding operations offshore.
