Kongsberg Maritime secures contract to supply Maritime Simulators to Indonesian Training Centre

Kongsberg Maritime has been selected to supply a large suite of Maritime Simulators to Barombong Merchant Marine College (BP2IP) in Indonesia. As part of the contract, Kongsberg Maritime will provide its world-class Polaris and Neptune Simulators for navigation and engine room training to the school’s new facility.

Following an open tender that saw Kongsberg Maritime’s proven products and comprehensive proposal secure the contract, the simulation developer will install an extensive range of equipment and software at BP2IP’s new ship-shaped training facility to help meet the increasing need for expert maritime training in the region. The scope of supply includes a ship’s bridge simulator, engine room simulator, Polaris Crisis Management/Oil Spill simulator, GMDSS trainers, instructor stations, Exercise Area Database Creator, full mission ERS and target ship, and own ship hydrodynamic models.    

 

“It is a priority for the Ministry of Transport that training centers are able to deliver world-class mariners for the global manning of ships and Kongsberg Maritime Simulators enable us to provide students with the skills and experience they need to become the best seafarers,” comments Mr M. Chairul Djohansyah, ST, M.Mar.e, Principal of Barombong Merchant Marine College. “The installation of this training technology shows our commitment to the provision of outstanding education at all levels.”

 

The Kongsberg Maritime Polaris and Neptune simulators meet the requirements of IMO, SOLAS, the latest STCW Convention and are certified by the world’s leading maritime classification societies. Together, they will provide a broad mix of training scenarios across numerous disciplines, including bridge team management, ship-handling and manoeuvring, radar observation and plotting, automatic radar plotting aids and engine resource and team management.

 

“We already have several deliveries to other civil and naval training centres in Indonesia but we see this as a significant expansion to our activity in the region,” comments Peter Grindem, Area Sales Manager, Kongsberg Maritime Simulation. “Our delivery to BP2IP covers a broad spectrum of training disciplines and we are looking forward to providing the new facility with our state-of-the-art simulators.”
