In our Full Mission Bridge Simulator, it is possible to make a full simulation of the navigation operations performed onboard a ship. Operations are carried out in different weather conditions and environments, including areas with limited space and ice conditions.
Our bridge simulator is certified by the classification society Det Norske Veritas. The simulator, a Transas Navi-Trainer Professional 5000, is a Class A simulator that allows a complete simulation of the operations carried out onboard, including maneuvering in confined areas. The simulator is capable of simulating all the competence requirements of the international regulatory framework STCW. The simulator consists of one bridge with a cylindrical visual projection of 360 and four bridges with three 55-inch visuals.
Interchangeable consoles make it possible to simulate different bridge configurations such as tugs, speed boats and all types of merchant ships. In the "debriefing room", a complete simulation exercise can be viewed, including the actions taken on the radar or ECDIS. All bridges are equipped with DP controls one class A and four class B DP simulators.
Education and research
The simulator is intended primarily for external courses for officers, but the senior students in the master mariner classes also practice here. In addition to educational exercises, research is conducted in our various research groups, as well as external research studies. We also do accident investigations in cooperation with the Commission of Inquiry.
