Norway-based technology enterprise Kongsberg Maritime has been selected to supply offshore vessel simulators for Danish Maersk Training's new centre in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, it emerged on Monday. The move will allow offshore crews and specialists to practice on procedures and emergency situations.

The supply will include advanced offshore vessel simulators and in progress support services for a period of ten years to Maersk Training Brazil. The simulators are integrated with Konsberg’s K-Pos Dynamic Positioning Simulator and are designed for education and procedure training of navigators and winch-operators of anchor-handling vessels.

The offshore vessel simulator is expected to begin operations at Maersk Training Brazil in the second quarter of 2013.

As a part of the contract, Kongsberg has also signed a Long Term Service Support (LTSSP) agreement with Maersk Training Brazil to ensure delivery of support and new software versions for a period of five years.

"Our new simulators will be highly flexible so our experienced staff will be able to develop customised anchor handling, DP courses as well as other types of maritime courses to meet the needs of the Brazilian market for all companies in the maritime and offshore maritime industry," said Maersk Training Brazil's managing director Hans Dürke Bloch Kjaer.

The offshore vessel simulator is expected to begin operations at Maersk Training Brazil in the second quarter of 2013.

Kongsberg's offshore vessel simulator is already in operation at EMAS Academy in Singapore, Superior Energy Services in Houston / Alaska, SimSea in Norway, Lerus Training in Ukraine and Maersk Training in Denmark.
