Extensive simulator delivery will also include simulation R&D services and tools.
Kongsberg Maritime announces the signing of an extensive contract for the Integrated Marine Simulator Upgrade Project with the Australian Maritime College (AMC). The scope of supply includes delivery of a 270° Main Bridge, 6 Ship Operating Console (SOC), 160° Bridges with re-configurable cockpit consoles and a 180° Tug Bridge, a portable simulator and significant capacity in web enabled simulations.
Research and Development stations to further the capacity and capability of AMC to deliver training and research projects to the Australian and regional maritime market are also included. The system is based on the highly successful Kongsberg Maritime Polaris bridge simulator architecture delivered worldwide to the leading maritime institutions. The phased delivery and installation will take place over the next 12 months.
"Kongsberg Maritime is proud to be awarded such a high-profile bridge simulator contract for the prestigious AMC Project and we welcome the opportunity to share our vast simulation experience and knowledge with the college," states Henry Tremblay Kongsberg Maritime Area Sales Manager. "We are highly motivated and excited to be a part of the continuing AMC presence in the maritime training and research environment and we look forward to working together and further developing our relationship."
Kongsberg Maritime will utilise its strong links with AAL Australia Pty Ltd. to support AMC locally through project management, installation and long term maintenance of the simulators.
"The selection of Kongsberg Maritime to meet AMC's simulation requirements comes as a result of a careful evaluation of international suppliers. The system being delivered will ensure that AMC remains at the forefront of maritime training and research in the Australian region," states Professor Malek Pourzanjani, Principal of the Australian Maritime College.
