Superior takes delivery of new training complexTraining // May 8, 2012
Superior Energy Services in Houston, Texas, recently took delivery of a highly advanced training simulator.
The simulator from Kongsberg Maritime will be used to provide integrated, realtime training for Superior’s offshore marine personnel at its new facility in Anchorage, Alaska.
Under the terms of the contract, signed September 2011, Kongsberg Maritime supplied Superior Energy Marine Technical Services with a full mission trainer in support of critical operations including ship bridge manoeuvring and navigation, anchor handling, ROV operations, crane operations, process control, containment, and controlled pumping and flaring of hydrocarbons.
The system supports the full spectrum of offshore Simultaneous Operations (SIMOPS) activities in support of developing best practices for both surface and subsea marine practices – all conducted in real time and in the safety of a simulated environment.
The simulator features two full offshore service vessel bridges, with 360 degree field of view, an offshore crane simulator, supplied by Kongsberg, GlobalSim, a DeepWorks ROV simulator, supplied to Kongsberg by Fugro Subsea Services Ltd and a separate Process Simulator, for operator training and control system checkout in addition to multiphase flow simulation, supplied by Kongsberg Oil & Gas Technologies.
