Industry Database

Kongsberg Digital has launched a new 3D virtual application for its state-of-the-art K-Sim Cargo simulator to fulfil the industry need to secure the safety and efficiency of cargo transfer operations.

The system generates high-fidelity visualisation for operational training on important areas of the cargo deck, enabling training centers equipped with K-Sim Cargo to deliver even more value to their customers while meeting the

“We will continue to develop our K-Sim Cargo models by adding visualised deck area systems in 3D in the years to come,” said Leif Halvorsen, product manager, Kongsberg Maritime.

“We believe the training value will increase significantly by adding this 3D feature.”

Customer request

Kongsberg said that the new 3D virtual solution is a direct response to customer requests for high fidelity outside deck area training to accompany the existing 3D engine room capabilities of Kongsberg K-Sim Engine simulator.

The first 3D virtual model for K-Sim Cargo is based on a customised simulation model of a Very Large Crude Carrier (VLCC), M/T Kiho, which will be delivered to Magsaysay training centre in Manila in March.

Kongsberg existing standard K-Sim Cargo ship-models will receive similar virtual solutions in the future.

The K-Sim Cargo virtual model simulates the deck area in 3D, enabling the student to zoom in and interact with valves, flanges, cargo tank hatches, pressure vacuum valves and crude oil washing (COW) machines for local, hands-on operation.
