Kongsberg Maritime has received DNV-GL certification for three of its latest engine room simulator models designed to provide in-depth training on the K-Sim Engine simulator platform. The DNV GL-ST-033:2014-08 Maritime Simulator Systems certification, which is based on the on the requirements of STCW Convention, Regulation I/12, was given to the DE88 Oil Rig, DE66 Drill Ship and M42 AHTS (Anchor Handling Tug & Supply) K-Sim Engine models in June 2015.
Now commercially available to all K-Sim Engine users, the DE88 and DE66 models were originally developed together with Maersk Drilling to meet the training needs of its new generation of advanced deep-water drilling units, at Maersk’s own MOSAIC training centre in Denmark. The DE88 model was designed based on the semisubmersible rig Maersk Developer and sister rigs Maersk Deliverer and Discoverer. The DE66 model was based on the 7th generation ultra-deepwater drillships Maersk Viking, Maersk Valiant, Maersk Venturer and the most recent Maersk Voyager. The models have advanced Power Management Systems and systems to train understanding and operation of redundancy in complex DP operations
