Management consultancy BMT has signed multiple contracts with cruise lines including Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, Seabourn in North America and P&O Cruises Australia for office and ship-based licences of BMT’s REMBRANDT maritime simulator.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"} REMBRANDT is a fully scalable and readily configurable ship simulator with high hydrodynamic accuracy and visual display. It can be operated in full mission bridge modes or as a portable laptop system.

As a fully certified DNV GL-Class A, B, C and S simulator, REMBRANDT supports modern offshore vessels with scalable ship bridge simulation and training applications, including complex shipping manoeuvres in shallow, hydrodynamic waters, training and assessment for the entire crew and ship to ship transfers.

The technology has recently been adopted by the U.S. National Transportation Safety Board’s (NTSB) Office of Marine Safety (OMS), the UK’s Marine Accident Investigation Branch, the Australian Transport Safety Board and the Dutch Safety Board.

The latest announcement by BMT will see REMBRANDT supporting more than 39 cruise ships.

“It is a proud day for BMT to have been entrusted to provide our versatile and scalable systems to power international fleets for some ships within the world’s largest leisure travel company. With its unique capabilities, REMBRANDT delivers the highest standards of manoeuvring simulation within an S-57 and S-63 ENC environment. This has been further enhanced by a high-fidelity, 3D scene reconstruction from multiple uncalibrated views using VDR and AIS data to generate visual reconstructions and playback files with a “pause and take control” feature that opens up new and exciting opportunities for state-of-the-art reflective training.  We are looking forward to supporting these widely recognised cruise line brands, to realise a successful systems’ application and delivery,” said Dr, Phil Thompson, Simulation and Training business director at BMT.

"At Holland America Line, Princess Cruises, Seabourn and P&O Cruises Australia, our number one priority is the safety and comfort of the guests who sail with us every year," stated Eric Chamberlin vice president of Marine for Princess Cruises, Holland America Line, Seabourn and P&O Australia. "For us, providing one of the world's leading solutions for maritime simulation and virtual training to support international operations is essential in helping us meet that priority. For that reason, we have formed an important partnership with BMT, one of the world's most respected leaders." {/mprestriction}
