BMT’s integrated navigation and maneuvering simulator suite REMBRANDT has been awarded Class A, B and C certification from DNV GL. 

The certification further builds on BMT REMBRANDT’s 30-year history as one of the maritime industry’s most recognized advanced project engineering support tools, supporting marine pilotage, ship operations, port design and risk management associated with complex transportation infrastructure systems.

This classification award verifies BMT as a quality manufacturer offering a simulator system that complies with STCW 78 and the DNVGL-ST-0033 Maritime Simulator Systems standard.  REMBRANDT certification also includes the use of BMT’s tug simulator and for applications extending to inland waterways navigation. This is in addition to the DNV GL Class S accreditation which BMT REMBRANDT has held for over five years to carry out specialist project-based simulation.

DNV GL awards grade scale for levels of performance capabilities of maritime simulators. The classes are Class A (full mission), Class B (multi-task), Class C (limited task), whereas Class S (special tasks) is used for simulators where performance is defined on a case by case basis.

The REMBRANDT software is already used by an impressive number of maritime companies and organisations for applications such as training of deck officers, port navigational risk assessments, mooring and understanding complex maneuvers. More recently, it has been adopted by several statutory marine accident investigation agencies, including the UK’s MAIB.
