Modal Training, the first organisation in the UK to offer integrated, multimodal logistics training, has invested in a full suite of advanced ship, offshore vessel, engine room and radar simulators from Kongsberg Maritime, a global leader in marine training technology.

Modal Training will use the equipment, which includes a detailed 360? model of the Humber estuary on the east coast of Northern England, to support the delivery of advanced training courses for maritime professionals and businesses at its new 7million centre of excellence in Immingham.

The simulators will enable Modal to offer training that effectively replicates the working environment for a wide range of maritime roles, including bridge crews, navigators, maritime engineers and Vessel Traffic Service (VTS) operators. Each part of the simulator system can be operated independently, or be interconnected to provide full vessel operation exercises for an entire crew.

Patrick Henry, CEO of Modal Training, said:

"Modal provides training of the absolute highest quality to maritime businesses across the UK, which is why we've invested in a full suite of advanced marine simulators from Kongsberg Maritime."

"We've listened to leading companies from across the maritime, offshore and renewables industries, and we are in the process of developing an extensive suite of equipment designed to meet their real-world training requirements exactly. Kongsberg Maritime is the global leader in marine technology and its simulators are widely regarded as the finest available in the world today.

"The Humber is home to the UK's largest multi-purpose ports complex and Modal will provide the high quality, tailored training that businesses need to take advantage of growing opportunities in the region and across the wider sector."

The centrepiece of the simulation suite will be a Class A full mission K-Sim Offshore vessel simulator with forward and aft bridge, configured with a DP2 dynamic positioning system and anchor handling vessel hardware. The suite will also be equipped with two Class B K-Sim Navigation ship's bridge simulators, with one configured as a workboat/tug bridge.

Modal has also invested in a K-Sim DP Class C desktop simulator system for dynamic positioning training, and a desktop K-Sim Navigation configured for ECDIS radar training for up to six students. The engine room suite is equipped with a full mission K-Sim Engine simulator, including the high voltage functionality, and a desktop engine room simulator. A K-Sim VTS operator simulator system completes the new equipment line-up.
