Kongsberg simulators for FIDENATraining // April 21, 2015
Fideicomiso de Formación y Capacitación para el Personal de la Marina Mercante Nacional (FIDENA), on behalf of Mexico’s Secretariat of Communications and Transportation (SCT), has selected Kongsberg Maritime offshore simulators for the Marine Education Center in Ciudad del Carmen, Campeche.
Appointed by SCT, FIDENA is the educational institution in charge of managing, organising and developing the formal education of all seafarers in Mexico. As Mexico’s only institution offering higher level programmes in maritime education, FIDENA has garnered widespread international recognition and plans to secure its position through the signing of a contract with Kongsberg Maritime for the supply of K-Sim DP (dynamic positioning simulators) and K-Sim Offshore (offshore vessel simulators).
The new simulators will enable FIDENA instructors to provide training for operations relating to the offshore oil and gas industry in the Gulf of Mexico and further afield, with improved capabilities for the simulation of DP, anchor handling, ship handling and navigation for a full range of offshore units from support ships to oil production and storage vessels.
