The engine room at the School of Stimulation & Senior Marine at South Tyneside College will be upgraded

Kongsberg Maritime has been chosen to supply a set of upgraded navigation, engine room and Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) simulator hardware and software to the School of Stimulation & Senior Marine at South Tyneside College.

The project, which will be carried out over the summer, will include installation of Kongsberg Maritime’s simulation systems in the School of Simulation & Senior Marine.

Paul Hodgson, technical and projects manager, School of Marine Simulation and Senior Marine, South Tyneside College, said: “The new equipment will all have the very latest Kongsberg software installed. The old style radar displays, joystick unit, bridge and engine consoles, communication devices, projectors etc will all be replaced with modern equivalents. The real power of the simulators is in the realism generated by the careful matching of software and hardware. Our upgraded simulator facilities will provide this realism, to ensure students receive high quality training across our wide range of courses.”

The project will feature an upgrade of the School of Stimulation & Senior Marine’s full mission engine room simulato. The school's engine room simulator will include new local operating stations which will enable different engine types to use the same hardware. As well as this, touch screen technology will be installed for Kongsberg Maritime’s new interactive virtual engine room applications.

The upgrade will allow the college to provide its students with enhanced industry training.
