Kongsberg Maritime has secured certification from classification society DNV-GL for three of its latest engine room simulator models developed to deliver in-depth training on the K-Sim Engine simulator platform.

DNV-GL awarded the maritime simulator systems certification to the M42 anchor handling tug & supply K-Sim, DE88 oil rig and DE66 drill ship engine models.

Kongsberg Maritime product manager Leif Pentti Halvorsen said: "We have the most extensive library of high-fidelity propulsion plants and engine models certified by DNV-GL available today.

"These latest approvals reflect the accuracy and pedagogical values of our latest engine room models."

"These latest approvals reflect the accuracy and pedagogical values of our latest engine room models, which have been designed to provide training for engineers, whilst also being part of CRM exercises through the integration of K-Sim Engine with, among other Kongsberg simulators, K-Sim Offshore and K-Sim Navigation."

The M42 AHTS K-Sim engine model is based on a medium-speed engine room configuration from a modern anchor handler, tug and supply vessel (AHTS) with four Krupp Mak medium-speed engines and two controllable pitch propellers.

The model is designed to cover the operation and system understanding of the vessel’s configurations including the four main engines.

Developed in collaboration with Maersk Drilling, the DE88 and DE66 models meet the training requirements of its new generation of advanced deepwater drilling units at Maersk’s MOSAIC training centre in Denmark.

The DE-88 model was designed based on the semisubmersible rig Maersk Developer and sister rigs Deliverer as well as Discoverer, while the DE-66 model was based on the drillships Maersk Viking, Valiant, Venturer and the latest Voyager.
