Tandem loading

K-Sim Offshore supports training of shuttle tanker/offtake tanker bridge crew and assisting/support vessel crew during tandem loading. For DP2 shuttle tankers, the simulated bridge is integrated with KONGSBERG K-Pos DP2 system. DP reference systems DARPS, Artemis and RADius, signal input and operator stations. For non DP tankers, tanker assist by tugs is supported.

Typical training scenarios are:

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