Bibby Ship Management India Pvt. Ltd contracted Kongsberg Maritime to deliver a Kongsberg Offshore Vessel Simulator (KOVS) including an upgrade of the customer’s existing Kongsberg Dynamic Positioning (DP) simulator in Mumbai. This extension to the Bibby Training Institute Mumbai represents the first KOVS in India and was commissioned to strengthen Bibby’s ability to conduct advanced training courses for Indian seafarers.

The Bibby Training Institute Mumbai has already helped to grow the number of certified Indian DP operators, from 60 when it opened in 2006 to more than 1,000 today. The new simulator delivery will meet a similar growing demand for trained and certified crew, especially for anchor handling and other specialist operations.

The scope of supply for the delivery includes a Kongsberg Offshore Vessel Simulator with visual scene, featuring anchor handling vessel, shuttle tanker and drilling rig models, enabling advanced offshore operations exercises and courses covering: manual handling OSV, anchor handling, offshore loading, position reference, drilling rig operation, power management, ship maneuvering, advanced ECDIS, bridge team management, bridge resource management and pilotage.

The existing Kongsberg DP simulator will also be upgraded to a DP 2 simulator fulfilling DNV/NI class A requirement as part of the project. The DP simulator will be integrated with the KOVS, providing the possibility to run DP2 courses with sea time reduction in addition to complete offshore vessel training.   

Kongsberg Maritime has also received an order from Bibby Ship Management’s Bibby Ukraine Training Center to upgrade its existing Kongsberg Dynamic Positioning Simulator to the latest requirements for a NI (Nautical Institute) Class B DP Simulator.
