BMT Consultants India (BMT), an international maritime design, engineering and risk management consultancy, announced a partnership with Bibby Ship Management to deliver training for marine pilots. Based at Bibby’s state of the art training center at St Xavier’s Technical Institute in Mumbai, the new partnership will utilize BMT’s REMBRANDT marine maneuvering simulator.

Operating directly from S57 ENC chart data, REMBRANDT is a highly accurate, capable and flexible alternative to Full Mission Bridge (FMB) marine simulators, allowing the user to load any port. REMBRANDT utilizes high fidelity ship models that include over 750 parameters, ensuring that the user experiences identical ship to ship interaction, ship to bank interaction, squat and shallow water effects as the real ship would in the same conditions. Simulations can be replayed in video format with track plots and data information printed or saved electronically, providing an opportunity to analyze the trainees’ performance. 

REMBRANDT has enhanced tidal current and wind settings to accommodate the unique features of a given port. It can also provide Client Server, a multi-user mode which enables multiple vessels to operate in a single operational scenario; each with independent human control, making it a powerful and effective training tool. BMT has deployed REMBRANDT worldwide in over 125 projects working with a number of leading ship and terminal operators.

BMT and Bibby Ship Management will be focusing on the Asia Pacific Region, the Persian Gulf, the Indian subcontinent and Africa.

Agarwal (Managing Director) Bibby Ship Management explains: “Our aims and objectives in this partnership are to provide pilotage training of the highest standard, catering for all levels of proficiency ranging from entry level to senior pilots. We will also provide bridge team and resource management training, as well as “Officer of the Watch” training to nautical officers.”

Suren Vakil, Managing Director of BMT Consultants India comments: “BMT has provided specific training and workshops for Adani and Shell pilots at Hazira and all of the pilots working in Mundra.  To our credit, the Mundra pilots recently came to BMT for support when they wanted to bring in the biggest container vessel to have berthed at any Indian port. I look forward to a successful partnership where we make our mark in helping to improve the safety of ports in the Indian sub-continent and elsewhere in the Region.”
