Kongsberg Digital has announced that it will be providing a second Full Mission K-Sim Engine simulator package to the Danish training institute Aarhus Maskinmesterskole (AAMS). The package, which is scheduled for delivery in February 2024, will include three engine models designed to achieve specific training objectives for various propulsion and engine types. One notable model is a cruise ferry model, specifically tailored to facilitate mandatory IGF Code training for personnel serving on LNG-fuelled vessels.
In addition, Kongsberg Digital will be developing a new engine model for AAMS, based on the machinery configuration of an advanced hybrid coastal passenger vessel. This model will feature a diesel/methanol electric hybrid system, with four dual-fuel generators and a 7500-kWh battery pack. The aim is to provide training in managing hybrid power systems, methanol bunkering, and methanol-powered engines, in line with the evolving safety and environmental standards in the maritime industry. The focus of the training will be on the safe handling of low flash point fuels.
This partnership between Kongsberg Digital and AAMS highlights the importance of training and preparing maritime professionals for the future of the industry. With the development of new engine models and a focus on safety and environmental standards, students at AAMS will be equipped with the necessary skills and knowledge to navigate the challenges of the evolving maritime landscape. By providing advanced simulation technology, Kongsberg Digital is enabling AAMS to offer realistic and effective training for its students, ensuring they are well-prepared for their careers in the maritime industry.
