Our K-Sim simulators range from full-scale bridge simulators with realistic features to cloud-based training to enable engaging exercises anytime and anywhere.
Kongsberg Digital has a proven track record with over 50 years of experience: Our simulators are currently being used across the world by educational institutions such as; universities, maritime academies, vocational schools, naval forces, coast guards, pilots and companies within shipping, cruise, offshore and fishery.
Technology gives a cost-efficient training method, students and crew can train on improving fuel economy and reduce pollution, we can map out best practice in operations, with environmental and sustainability concerns, and achieve feasibility studies and verification of complex operations. This inspires us to further develop our simulation technology so that we can help the maritime industry practice on how they can do the best job possible, without causing harm to humans or nature.
With simulators, students and crew can train on improving efficiency, fuel economy and reduce emissions. A recent example from one of the maritime academies, showed that the students succeeded in achieving a significant reduction of fuel consumption. At the first exercise the mean value for fuel was 4804 liters and during the second exercise it was reduced to 2432 liters. The difference from the first to the second exercise proves that there are great environmental and economic gains to be made by training on minimizing fuel consumption.
Mistakes in the simulator can become lessons learnt without risking damage to people, vessels, equipment and the environment. Building competence and best practice by realistic simulation training will lead to reduction of human errors, which is the most common reason for maritime accidents. Besides this, one of the biggest advantages of our simulation technology, is that it gives student and crew the opportunity to test, plan and validate demanding scenarios and practice on how to handle incidents which will be too risky or impractical to train for in real life.
The rapid development of the maritime industry, puts high demand on the skills and competence of the workforce. Simulator training enables efficient and structured training in a range of skills including handling of the technical equipment found onboard. By integrating several simulators, in the same training scenario, one can put focus on the human elements and train the entire crew to build more efficient teams. The realism in the simulators often gives a reduction in the time for training at sea, and the need for allocating vessels and equipment for training purposes decreases
These courses are aimed at instructors and maintenance personnel of KONGSBERG’s Maritime Training Simulators including K-Sim Navigation, Polaris, Offshore, Engine, Cargo and Dynamic Positioning. As a supplement to simulator operator training, we offer your instructors courses in instruction and assessment.
At Kongsberg Digital, we endeavour to work in close partnership with our customers – from project initiation, to installation and throughout the simulator system’s operational lifetime.
