Kongsberg Simulators for Maersk Training Center

Thursday, December 15, 2011

Kongsberg Maritime is providing maritime simulators for Maersk's new State-of-the-art drilling operations and offcshore training facility.     

 

Kongsberg Maritime simulators have been selected for the forthcoming MOSAIC 2 facility (Maersk Offshore Simulation and Innovation Centre) at Maersk Training in Svendborg, Denmark. Building officially commenced on the state-of-the-art new facility on the Maersk Training campus on 29th November 2011.

A frame agreement signed by Kongsberg Maritime and Maersk Training on December 12th 2011 covers delivery of a range of simulators and ongoing support that will act as the platform for high quality offshore drilling operations training at MOSAIC 2. The new training facility expands on the existing MOSAIC facility in Svendborg that opened in February 2010 and uses sophisticated offshore simulators supplied by Kongsberg Maritime to train Maersk Supply Services personnel.
 

The MOSAIC 2 simulator delivery is scheduled to start within 6 months and includes a KONGSBERG Offshore Vessel Simulator with the flexibility to be configured as various vessels, i.e. a control room on-board a floating semi-submersible rig, a jack up towmaster station and an anchor handling vessel. The new simulator will be mounted on a motion platform and will together with Kongsberg's K-Chief 700 automation system, K-Pos Dynamic Positioning Trainer and a Ballast Control system give the crews a highly realistic experience in a genuine environment.
 

MOSAIC 2 will be used to lift competency in the whole drilling industry by  training personnel from Maersk Drilling, which is a key player in the provision of drilling services to oil companies worldwide, and other rig operators and oil companies. The new campus will accommodate the new suite of offshore simulators, providing facility to perform advanced team-training, which is important to increase competencies for minimising injuries, whilst increasing efficiency. Crews from Maersk Supply Service will also use the new facilities.
 

“The simulators will enable our crew to train specifically in the surroundings they find themselves in when going to the rig. Further, with a more team oriented training approach, it will provide the most realistic drilling operations simulation training available in the market today. This will increase safety and help our teams to operate more effectively,” says Claus V. Hemmingsen, CEO Maersk Drilling.
 

The scope of supply also includes a Neptune Engine Room Simulator with BigView interactive touch screen technology and three new engine models specially developed for advanced drill rig and other offshore operation training. In addition, a brand new Riser Management Simulator and a crane simulator are included with the final delivery scheduled for 2013. The long-term contract also includes a service support program, which will commit the two parties to continuing their simulator training partnership at MOSAIC throughout the next decade.
 

“The lessons learnt and existing high quality simulator training we provide at MOSAIC 1 have resulted in a measureable safety record in this field,” according to Tonny M. Moeller, Operations Manager at Maersk Training. “In addition to enhanced safety and emergency preparedness, the new simulator centre is expected to enable time and cost savings for Maersk Drilling because offshore crews and specialists can train on procedures and emergency situations prior to a mission. This ensures that all eventualities can be planned for, for every different operation.”
