Maritime simulation is key to a greener shipping
A recent report from Linnaeus University in Sweden shows that simulator training leads to a huge improvement in emission reduction for the shipping industry. According to the Senior Lecturer of the University, there is no doubt that the industry will depend on this technology in the years to come.
“With research data from different courses and projects, we have found that simulator training and exercises in Eco driving make positive results in fuel saving. All results from these independent projects and courses are similar and between 600-700 captains and officers have passed different Eco-driving training and exercises at our University. The training has given them huge positive results in fuel-saving, and all experienced improvements at reducing emissions. There is no doubt that the industry will depend on this method in the years to come."
During the MRM classes, engineer students can practice and get feedback on their actual fuel-consumption. The connection between K-Sim ship’s bridge and engine room simulators makes it possible to measure fuel consumption more precisely
