The latest version of K-Sim DP, a Dynamic Positioning (DP) Maneuvering simulator from Kongsberg Maritime, has received Class A Certification from Det Norske Veritas (DNV). This makes it compliant with the highest DNV standard for DP simulators according to Standard of Certification of Maritime Simulators number 2.14 (January 2011).

K-Sim DP Maneuvering is the most advanced in a long line of Dynamic Positioning simulators developed by Kongsberg Maritime. It is built on the same advanced technology platform as the market leading K-Sim Offshore (previously known as the KONGSBERG Offshore Vessel Simulator) and has the power to provide realistic and relevant DP training in various simulated conditions and environments.

“The DNV Class A approved K-Sim DP is developed to conduct more operational and scenario based courses, fulfilling the industry’s training requirements and has the possibility to replace a significant amount of the on board training required in a typical Dynamic Positioning Operator (DPO) training scheme,” comments Geir Lilje, Product Advisor, Kongsberg Maritime.

The new K-Sim DP Maneuvering simulator is configured with a dual redundant DP system and a 240 degree or wider visual scene. It includes a fully integrated Power Management System and is delivered with standard DP reference systems such as Artemis, Hydroacoustic Position Reference system (HPR), DPS and DARPS. FanBeam and RADius position reference systems are also available as options.

K-Sim DP includes an extensive Instructor system, which has the power to design realistic scenarios and introduce faults and alarm settings throughout the entire training exercise. Recording and replay of all simulation exercises in addition to objective assessment, allow the students to build competence and to be prepared for both daily and emergency situations that might occur in real life.
