Tuesday, March 15, 2011

ALEXANDRIA, Va., March 15, 2011 – L-3 MPRI, a global provider of integrated training solutions, which includes simulation-based training systems, services and turnkey training facilities, today announced the installation of its Safe Cargo Liquid Cargo Handling Simulator (LCHS) in Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement’s (BSM) new Maritime Training Centre, which officially opened on Jan. 21, 2011 in Manila, Philippines. The simulator will be used to train and enhance the skills of personnel operating BSM’s extensive fleet of owned and managed liquid cargo vessels. BSM, one of the world’s largest ship management companies, is firmly committed to the Philippines and currently has over 7,000 Filipino seafarers in its pool.

L-3 MPRI’s Safe Cargo system is comprised of one instructor and six student workstations, each fitted with dual monitor displays and equipped with three ship models, allowing training to be conducted in all the main liquid cargo disciplines of chemical, gas and oil operations. It is also one of the first installations to use the new 5.0 version of the LCHS software. To assist with system setup, L-3 MPRI is additionally providing course materials for all three vessel types, as well as specialized training for future instructors, both in the technical operation of the simulator and the training techniques that should be used to ensure best practices.

The LCHS installation in Manila continues a long-standing relationship between BSM and L-3 MPRI.

In addition to the Philippines, BSM, with its strong focus on continuous improvement in all areas of its operation, has also invested in LCHS systems and bridge and engine simulators in its training centers in Cyprus, India and Poland.
