K-Sim® DP Basic, Dynamic Positioning Simulator

Training of Dynamic Positioning Operators (DPO) is conducted according to IMCA M117 The Training and Experience of Key DP Personnel.

The training is done according to Nautical Institute’s (NI) certification scheme in a five phase program; introduction course, seagoing familiarisation, followed by DP simulator course, supervised DP watch keeping, and concluding with final candidate Statement of Suitability by Master. 

Or the training can be done according to a DNV GL approved training scheme e.g KONGSBERG SMSC. The three levels are concluded with a practical assessment.


KONGSBERG DP simulators provide training for most types of DP vessels and configurations including:

Supply Vessel, Shuttle tanker, Drillship, semi submersible unit.

Customer specific ship models with corresponding DP and hydrodynamic models can be delivered on request.


Operator errors during DP operations may lead to expensive downtime, or even worse; accidents or incidents resulting in damage, pollution, personnel injuries or fatalities. This implies the need for a comprehensive training program for key DP personnel along with accurate and realistic trainer systems. The K-Sim® DP, Basic is used throughout the basic and general training of DP operators.


The desktop operator stations comprise a full operator panel connected to a PC and are arranged in a classroom setting with an instructor station. All DP stations normally simulate the same vessel and DP system configuration, but operate independently of each other.


The instructor will be able to guide the students when operating the DP system. The built in simulator offers realistic responses to the operations initiated by each student.
