Maritime Simulators for New Australian Maritime College

Wednesday, December 08, 2010

A Dynamic Positioning (DP) Operator Training Facility, featuring an extensive simulator suite developed by Kongsberg Maritime was opened in Northbridge, Western Australia on November 22, 2010. Owned and run by the Australian Maritime College (AMC), the new facility is ideally positioned to serve the growing Western Australia oil & gas business from its centre in Perth.

"Prior to opening our first DP Operator Training Facility in Tasmania last year, which is also based on Kongsberg Maritime DP simulators, Australian trainees would have to travel to Europe or the U.S. for DP courses, so we are delighted to be expanding our capacity for DP training already," comments John Foster, AMC Search CEO. "The new facility strengthens our ability to support the demand for skilled DP operators by providing high quality training using serving DP officers as instructors and sophisticated simulators able to exactly mimic the operation and maintenance of complex DP systems."

The Kongsberg Maritime simulator installation at the new AMC facility in Perth includes the K-POS Basic DP Trainer for classroom arrangement, complete with 4 DP Models and the K-POS Advanced DP Trainer with Instructor Station and dual redundant DP control system complete with 4 DP models. All equipment has been designed and delivered in accordance with the Nautical Institute requirements. The Basic and Advanced Trainers can be used to practice DP operations on four DP models: Generic Supply Vessel, Generic Drill Ship, Generic Semi Submersible and Generic Tanker.
