Buoy loading

K-Sim Offshore supports training of shuttle tanker/offtake tanker bridge crew and assisting/support vessel crew during buoy loading. The simulator system supports both the option of buoy loading with a DP2 shuttle tanker and the option of using a non DP tanker, where the tanker is assisted by tugs.

Typical training scenarios are:

  • ship handling, incl. coastal navigation
  • berthing and unberthing
  • approach, connecting, loading and disconnection
  • emergency disconnect and manoeuvring
  • engine blackout & propulsion failure
  • DP failure
  • communication
