The delivery to Maersk Training Brazil Treinamentos Maritimos LTDA is under a non-exclusive frame agreement signed by Kongsberg Maritime and Maersk Training 13 months ago, which covers supply of simulators and on-going support for a 10 year period.
The first multiple integrated simulator delivery within this frame agreement was to Maersk Training’s centre in Svendborg – Maersk Offshore Simulation And Innovation Centre II - which opened in November 2012.
The contract for this new delivery to Brazil was signed August 2012, with an extension in December 2012.
The Offshore Vessel Simulator at Maersk Training Brazil will be operational in the second quarter of 2013, and will be integrated with a K-Pos Dynamic Positioning Simulator.
The contract also includes a Long Term Service Support (LTSSP) agreement ensuring delivery of support and new software versions for a five year period.
“The maritime industry will benefit from training on these state-of-the-art Kongsberg simulators, since offshore crews and specialists can practice on procedures and emergency situations prior to a mission. This ensures that all possible scenarios can be planned for, for every different operation,” said Hans Dürke Bloch Kjaer, managing director at Maersk Training Brasil.
“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.”
