$15.5m simulator deal for Kongsberg in Singapore

Kongsberg has landed what it says is its largest ever simulator contract, following the agreement of a SGD$21.2 million (US$15.5m) deal with the Singapore Ministry of Home Affairs for the delivery of four K-Sim Tactical Boat Handling and Firing Simulators to the Singapore Police Coast Guard, alongside a 10-year maintenance agreement.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}Kongsberg Digital will deliver four high speed craft simulators replicating different boat types with a 240 HFOV (horizontal field of view) on full motion platforms, two Instructor Operator Stations and two briefing/debriefing rooms.

The agreement also covers project management and engineering, installation, commissioning and testing, and an integrated logistics service. Delivery is scheduled for Q1 2020.

“We are proud of our proven ability to deliver advanced systems of this calibre, providing Singapore Police Coast Guard with simulation training capability on an entirely new level,” said Tone-Merete Hansen, senior vice president of Kongsberg Digital.

“A financial commitment of this magnitude underscores our belief that simulator training is an absolutely crucial resource in the modern, ever-changing maritime environment.”

“The delivery will combine existing state-of-the-art software functionality with new customised vessel models including mock ups of the vessel hull and hardware similar to those on board the boats, an innovative projection system and additional functionality supporting the Singapore Police Coast Guard’s training objectives.”{/mprestriction}
