Introduction of major Simulators

Bridge Simulator

Full mission Bridge Simulator with 360° horizontal and downward view providing a comprehensive, natural and realistic operation environment of an actual vessel.

The 360º view permits natural simulation of activities on the bridge by multiple personnel in BRM training etc. The downward view provides a view of the pier while operating the vessel for arrival and departure at various ports, and intuitive understanding of the positional relationship between the vessel and the pier.

Various Scene Descriptions

The graphic computer provides various scene descriptions such as change of view from day to night and the various types of vessels, as well as restricted visibility caused by fog or rain. For nighttime views, stars can also be represented based on data calculated from latitude and longitude. Visibility can also be set to any desired distance.

Training Area Database

We have a large number of databases of domestic and foreign ports and marine sites. We can also create and reproduce data for ports that do not have databases or are incomplete in reality.

Wide variety of vessel types

Training is available for many types of ships, such as Containers, LNG carriers, VLCC, etc. We can provide customers with new vessel model as requested.

Dynamic Positioning Simulator

A Dynamic Positioning Simulator has a Dynamic Positioning System(DPS).
The DPS automatically measures external forces such as wind, wave, swell and tidal currents and initiates counteracting forces from Azipods and thrusters to maintain a vessel at a fixed point or to navigate a set route with precision. DPS is indispensable for cable-laying ships, offshore wind power-related special-purpose vessels and seabed oil field-related offshore vessels to maintain a fixed position or steer a course accurately to do their work.

MOL Group opened Japan's first DP Training Center on the lobby floor of MOL headquarters in Toranomon, Minato-ku, Tokyo, We provide DP training for MOL Group and 3rd party seafarers, further more we but also provide customized training to meets the demands of our customers, such as from offshore wind power generation projects and special vessels for offshore development.

In addition, this training program is certified by ClassNK.

Turbine Plant Simulator

The ECR/auxiliary equipment operation panels and large monitors reproduces the real ship, allowing the training to be implemented through realistic tension between the commander and the local scene.

Diesel Engine Simulator

Diesel Engine Simulator can realistically reproduce actual work on board by using total 14 monitors to operate the equipment.

VLCC Simulator

VLCC Simulator is realistically reproducing the CCR and on-deck operation on a large display.
