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.

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.
