    Kongsberg simulators for Ukrainian training centre

    Training // December 14, 2012

    A new training centre outfitted with the latest Kongsberg Offshore vessel simulator was opened by Ukrainian crewing company Lerus Ltd in Odessa on 3 December 2012.

    Established to meet growing training demand in Ukraine, Russia, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Romania and other European countries, the new Lerus Training Centre is the first in the Ukraine to offer fully integrated offshore vessel operations training.

    Lerus Ltd’s new simulator features a 240 degree field of view, offering life-like visuals to enhance realism during the varied training scenarios available, which are based on courses for: ship handling (AHTS, OSV, ROV, DSV, VLCC, MPSV), dynamic positioning, crane operations (Stage 1,2,3), anchor handling and towing/rig moves.

    The new simulator, which was installed this Autumn, offers complete vessel training where different teams may interact within the same exercise. To enable full vessel operation training, the Kongsberg K-Pos dynamic positioning simulator is integrated alongside an offshore crane simulator, which provides team training by realistically simulating a deck-mounted knuckle-boom crane or a wire-luffing lattice pedestal crane for platform lifting operations. The Kongsberg delivery also includes a stand-alone crane simulator for training on harbour operations.
