Simulation success leads to first contract
Following a successful roll out of the technology to numerous academies across the Indonesian market, BMT will deliver its first REMBRANDT® DNV Class A, B and C Full Mission Bridge Simulator at a Maritime Academy in Sabah Borneo.
Powered by the BMT flagship REMBRANDT® technology , the multi-disciplinary training product will provide maritime training and realistic simulation experiences to students, instructors and operators; enabling them to build their skills in many practical ways that will ultimately bring several core and adjacent market training requirements under one roof.
The consolidated training package from BMT addresses the commercial training needs for first responders and maritime training solutions for the civilian and military maritime industries. Other ancillary technical courses that will form part of the education and training specified by the new contracted facility are Bridge Team Management and specialist manoeuvring procedures including Ship to Ship (STS) transfer operations and Digital Forensics.
Dr Phil Thompson, Director of Maritime Simulation, Training and Surveys Systems at BMT, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Sabah Borneo and the leading maritime academies in the region for trusted, world-class simulation and training solutions that will bring tremendous leverage to their trainees.
“With our first REMBRANDT® entry into Sabah Borneo, on the back of multiple contract wins in Indonesia, this build-up in regional scalable contracts represents a holistic training approach, which we expect to see more in future. The flagship technology and its digitised range of maritime education and training offerings goes above and beyond Class A, B and C requirements to include Bridge Team Management and other specialist applications including STS transfer operations and Digital Forensics.” added Thompson.
Easily adaptable and scalable to specific training needs, the simulators can train large numbers of trainees simultaneously and provides the highest level of graphical detail and realism. This includes recent upgrades including cloud-based simulator operations - referencing the first-ever remote, simulator-based ship navigation training programme for multiple training stakeholders that BMT launched in conjunction with its US-based partner, SeaChange Resources, last month.
