KONGSBERG upgrades Bulgarian simulators

Ship's Bridge Simulator at the Bulgarian Maritime Training Centre (BMTC) in Varna, Bulgaria

Kongsberg Maritime has been contracted to provide extensions and upgrades to the simulation suite at the Bulgarian Maritime Training Centre - BMTC in Varna, Bulgaria. BMTC occupies an important position in the Bulgarian maritime industry by providing a large number of maritime training courses, modules and functions.

The installations will comprise an extension and upgrade of the existing KONGSBERG Polaris Ship's Bridge Simulator, with the latest SeaView visual system and an extension of the existing NEPTUNE engine room simulator.

In addition to simulation equipment upgrades, the BMTC has also entered into a five-year 'Long term System Support Program' (LTSSP) with KONGSBERG. This secures frequent system updates, training courses and top-level support through maintenance visits, remote software support and around the clock telephone support.

“The latest additions of equipment and services will help BMTC strengthen and maintain its position as on of the front runners in maritime training throughout Europe,” states Lars Erik Hilsen from the simulation dept.
