Damen And 360 Control Cooperate To Provide Tailor-made Training Programs

- Feb 06, 2018-

Simulation training is an effective way to supplement practical training programs(welding overlay,flange,pipe spooling). For port tug operators, this allows their captains to learn how to exercise in different scenarios.


Arwin den Ouden, managing director of 360 Control, speaking of the advantages of simulator training and the importance of the data, said: "The tug, though small, is big and maneuverable. Once linked to the vessel being assisted, an error We can simulate a tugboat of any size and any size, including ASD and tractor drives, as well as traditional tugboats. "Our simulator has a 360 degree field of view, giving a very realistic picture. Practice makes perfect, we start from the ship manipulation technology(welding overlay,flange,pipe spooling). Once the trainee has full control of the (simulated) vessel, we can start with specific situations such as quay and port assistance, escorts and mooring operations. Of course, if things go wrong, you can start over with a click of a mouse. "


360 Control can provide tailored training programs for operators worldwide. "We got a lot of requests from customers who started operations in a strange area and we could draw this specific area and create simulators for training including depth and velocity, wave and wind speed data.


An important aspect of creating a realistic simulation simulator is that there is enough data: "The more data you have, the more realistic the simulation is.This is not a video game - the simulator must be a one-on-one reflection of real life to achieve the required To keep improving, we tested with experienced captains, reviewing their feedback on the vessel's response, and we partnered with Damen Shipyard to implement their R & D results (welding overlay,flange,pipe spooling)and Navy build data to incorporate into our software to enable More realistic effect.
