Kongsberg Maritime has released its latest K-Sim Cargo simulator model, SCC-II, based on a Suezmax crude oil carrier with 12 cargo tanks and two slop tanks. Shown for the first time at Kongsberg Maritime’s European Simulator User Conference in Gothenburg this September, the new simulator model enables integrated, real-time exercises based on actual ship specifications and performance data on liquid cargo handling operations.

The model is delivered with a sophisticated new Integrated Automation System (IAS) to replicate Cargo Control Room (CCR) operations. The CCR can be represented by different combinations of interactive mimic panels, operational panels, consoles or desk-top stations, allowing it to be laid out according to the specific requirements of any training facility.

The new model contains a Closed Circuit TV system with three camera angles providing a view from both manifolds and a third camera with view from the jetty to give students a complete training scenario.

The SCC-II model is equipped with an inert gas plant to provide training on cleaning the flue gas and replacing combustible gases in the cargo tanks with low or non-flammable gases. The pump configuration represents a typical crude oil carrier with three cargo pumps, two ballast pumps, three oil/gas separators, a stripping pump and ejector.

Kongsberg Maritime’s state-of-the-art load calculator, K-Load, is also integrated in the model. The system uses the various tank levels and corresponding specific gravity and calculates hydrostatic conditions, intact stability, longitudinal strain, tank content and damage stability. It can also produce ullage and loading reports.

“SCC-II is designed to enhance the quality of simulation training by providing complete, intuitive and user-friendly control of student exercises,” said Leif Pentti Halvorsen, Product Manager, Kongsberg Maritime. “The K-Sim Cargo architecture provides a new level of realism, giving students a complete training scenario.”

The new model, which is certified by DNV GL and exceeds current STCW requirements, is already in use by Buskerud and Vestfold University College in Norway and TMS Cardiff Training Centre in Athens, Greece.
