HR Wallingford signs an alliance agreement with the Fremantle, Australia Maritime Simulation Centre (FMSC)

HR Wallingford has recently signed an alliance agreement with Fremantle Maritime Simulation Centre (FMSC).  This gives HR Wallingford the capability to conduct navigation simulation work in Western Australia.

HR Wallingford is an independent engineering and environmental hydraulics organisation, and FMSC is a state-of-the-art simulation facility, providing access to specialist marine pilot consultancy, in Fremantle, West Australia.

The newly formed alliance is presently operating out of FMSC's premises in Fremantle near Perth but will shortly be moving to a new purpose built facility, also in Fremantle.  The move should take place before the end of August and the facility will then have three ship simulators, two full bridge and one tug.

The facility, which will be known as HR Wallingford at FMSC, will initially focus on marine pilot familiarisation training, which is complementary to FMSC's capability in other ship navigation simulator based training.

Jane Smallman, managing director of HR Wallingford said, “This is a fantastic opportunity for HR Wallingford to develop a close working relationship with FMSC so that together, we can provide a state of the art ship simulation training facility in Western Australia.”
