NAVIGATION SIMULATION

Navigation Simulation Services

Simulation studies stand as a cornerstone in maritime operations, playing a pivotal role in steering decisions and dissecting the intricacies inherent in maritime projects. Whether your focus lies in open sea voyages, intricate coastal, or inland navigation, our expertise in navigation simulation services is designed to cater to these diverse needs. We leverage advanced simulation tools to inject realism and precision into the design and planning stages of ports, harbours, and approach channels, ensuring a navigational strategy that is both efficient and safe. The applications of Navigation simulation are Port development, manoeuvre rehearsals, ship-handling training, vessel familiarisation, incident/ accident investigations and briefing aid.

Through our comprehensive navigational audit, we delve into the operational depths of maritime projects. These audits are not just superficial checks but in-depth analyses that illuminate potential limitations, solidify or identify operational boundaries, and evaluate the risk landscape. The insights garnered from our navigation simulation services are instrumental in formulating robust, secure operational procedures.

Moreover, our navigation audit extends beyond standard practices. It encompasses assistance in critical aspects such as optimal placement strategies and the detailed technical specifications necessary for complex manoeuvring, seamless ship movements, and interactions between vessels. By revealing and understanding the nuanced dynamics of maritime operations, we empower stakeholders to make informed, confident decisions that uphold the highest standards of safety and operational integrity.

Navigation simulation has the following applications:

Port Development: It provides an accurate and cost-effective solution for the assessment of new port and terminal developments.

Manoeuvre Rehearsals: It provides a cost-effective solution to rehearsing marine operations and manoeuvres. Used on-board or ashore, officers and bridge teams can use it to practise manoeuvres for new ports, adverse weather conditions and to formally verify the safety/minimal risk of manoeuvre plans. It can be used to find out the optimum tug suite for a particular manoeuvre as well as the overall requirements of the Port.

Ship-handling Training: The simulator can be used to complement ‘full-bridge’ (e.g. Bridge Team Management courses) and on-the-job training. It also provides an ideal platform to test the ship officers for application of Collision Regulations.

Vessel Familiarisation: It can be used to familiarise personnel with a new vessel, following the conversion or upgrade of an existing ship. This can be done pre-delivery to ensure that the Master and bridge team are fully conversant with her handling capabilities.

Incident/ Accident Investigations: During and following an incident, simulation provides a very effective means of analysis. It can be used to provide real-time assistance for establishing the best course of action to deal with the incident and its repercussions. The incident’s causes can be assessed, mitigating scenarios can be explored and alternative actions can be determined for future training.

Briefing Aid: It provides user-friendly presentation of manoeuvres, ideal for use in bridge team briefings and de-briefings. It can also be used to demonstrate ship manoeuvring characteristics to pilots, and to demonstrate planned manoeuvres to enhance the bridge team’s effectiveness.
