Under the terms of the contract Superior Energy Marine Technical Services has been supplied with a full mission trainer in support of critical operations including ship bridge manoeuvring and navigation, anchor handling, ROV operations and crane operations.
The simulator features two full offshore service vessel bridges, with 360 degree field of view, an offshore crane simulator, a DeepWorks ROV simulator, and a separate Process Simulator, for operator training and control system checkout.
"At Superior Energy Services, we believe in ensuring our people are as prepared and properly trained as possible. It makes sense from a safety perspective, from an environmental perspective and from a business perspective – it is simply the right thing to do," said Captain Scott Powell.
"Partnering with Kongsberg Maritime provided a depth of engineering capability that allowed us to mirror a physical model-based simulation solution. This is the closest we can come to creating realistic scenarios without facing these circumstances first hand."
"Our people will be the best prepared in the industry and will have full confidence in the critical skills they will learn with this state-of-the-art simulator. This multi-team training capability will have a net positive effect on our preparedness and our commitment to health, safety and the environment."
