Oceanografia turns to Kongsberg for trainingTraining // September 20, 2012
Oceanografia SA de CV, one of Mexico’s largest offshore vessel operators, has signed a contract with Kongsberg Maritime Simulation’s Mystic in the US for a suite of offshore anchor handling, dynamic positioning, engineroom and crane simulation systems.
Kongsberg Maritime will supply Oceanografia with both basic and advanced dynamic positioning trainers. The Advanced K-Pos DP simulation trainer will be integrated to the Kongsberg Offshore Vessel Simulator (KOVS) including DP3 functionality in support of the Oceanografia offshore heavy lift vessel OHLV OSA Goliath.
The K-Pos DP system meets all new standards that will be required effective 2014 for DNV, NI and IMCA.
The Oceanografia Offshore Training Center will be certified for use in seatime reduction training, where time spent in simulator training significantly reduces time required for live training at sea, enabling safer and more cost-effective DP training.
In addition to the main KOVS bridge, Kongsberg Maritime will also supply Oceanografia with an integrated heavy lift crane simulator that will be matched to the crane found on Osa Goliath. Supplied by GlobalSim, a Kongsberg company, the crane simulator will include a full mission crane cab.
Oceanografia has also invested in a comprehensive range of technical and instructor (train-the trainer) programs that will cover all aspects of the DP, KOVS, crane, bridge and engineroom simulators.
To remain current with evolving regulatory changes, Oceanografia has contracted for a five-year long term system support programme.
