The state-of-the-art Simsea AS maritime training centre in Haugesund, Norway, has chosen Kongsberg Maritime to support the extension of its offshore simulation facilities with new simulators and significant upgrades to existing simulators.
Kongsberg Maritime has also recently delivered a new rig simulator model at Simsea, based on the Floatel Superior accommodation unit, which is currently in operation in the North Sea. Developed as a part of the K-Sim Offshore simulators installed at Simsea, the new customised model will be used to train semi-submersible rig personnel in advanced operation of Dynamic Positioning (DP), position mooring system (POSMOOR), stability/ballasting and rig move/anchoring.
Floatel International commissioned development of the simulator model to provide training for maritime rig personnel and to support its safety strategy. Simsea has already conducted courses for Floatel International and today the organisation boasts significant experience of rig personnel training on Kongsberg Maritime’s simulators.
