Halul Offshore opens offshore vessel simulator in QatarTraining // November 24, 2015
Halul Offshore Services Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Milaha, has acquired an offshore vessel ship handling simulator, which is the first of its kind in Qatar.
Halul is now one of the few companies in the Gulf region to own such a simulator, which is normally used in training schools.
Milaha’s President and CEO, Abdulrahman Essa Al-Mannai said: “The use of such modern equipment affirms our longstanding commitment to provide the highest level of training to our staff. This simulator supports the development of our operational capabilities, and will allow Halul to continue to provide innovative solutions to our partners and clients in Qatar and beyond, particularly in today’s challenging market.”
Halul’s CEO, Vivek Seth said: “This simulator will significantly add to our crew’s ship handling skills, and help them become better prepared for their next assignment on board our fleet of over 40 vessels. With this simulator we can create scenarios for towing operations like rig moves, berthing, unberthing, and tanker assist operations offshore. The simulator has an option to program for both azimuth and conventional driven vessels. We also have a dynamic positioning system integrated with the simulator.”
