SHIP TO SHIP OPERATIONS with real simulation - 2 active manned full mission ship-bridges *In cooperation with L'loyd's Register - Marine Training Services  duration: 2 days

CNTC has developed a training course for lightering operations. So far, approximately a thousand ship officers have taken a brief course through their ship handling training. One important reason for the high demand for the course is that, according to experienced Masters, the physical phenomena experienced during lightering operations are well represented by the simulation model. The training is normally performed on a single simulator bridge. This is more cost effective with regards to training. The training can, also, be performed on two simulator bridges in cooperation. This method is important for teamwork training of officers on two bridges undertaking the operation. Emergency manoeuvring with malfunctioning engine or rudder is also part of the training program. The training course at CNTC has been developed with the following objectives: 1) Simulation models that realistically express the effects on ship handling phenomena 2) Simulation of the physical properties of the fenders 3) Operational procedures, including checklists 4) Perform exercises with training objectives, prepared by experienced lightering pilot 5) Description of hydrodynamic actions involved in handling the SS safely and efficiently alongside the STBL in motion or berthed alongside a pier.
