Kongsberg GlobalSim has been awarded a contract with the Maritime Employers Association (MEA) of Montreal, Canada to supply several K-Sim Lift Training Simulators for heavy lift port equipment. The simulator system will include training modules for seven different types of heavy lift equipment, and will feature three different student-training stations to expand the training program in Montreal.

“The simulator will be the first step of every training program, for each type of equipment we use in Montreal,” said Sebastien Lambert, MEA’s Training Coordinator. “This will allow our trainees to start their training in a controlled environment with less stress and less chance of causing an accident.”

MEA chose Kongsberg GlobalSim as a sole source supplier after a long process of evaluating different simulation companies: “After six months,” says Lambert, “we finally made the decision to sign with Kongsberg GlobalSim because of the general quality of the system, especially in the realism of the simulation.”

The centerpiece of the training system will be a Full-Mission simulator cabin featuring dynamic motion, authentic controls, and an immersive visual environment. It will be Kongsberg GlobalSim’s first Full-Mission simulator installed in Canada. Alongside the Full-Mission trainer, the system will include two more student stations; a K-Sim Lift Essential and a K-Sim Lift Portable desktop system.

All three student stations will be capable of training operators of ship-to-shore, rubber-tired gantry, ship pedestal, and mobile harbor cranes, as well as commercial reach stackers, 5K warehouse forklifts, and empty container handlers.

Installation of the system is scheduled to begin in late August 2014.
