In our integrated subsea simulator we can provide anything from ROV pilot training and familiarization to complete dry runs of real operations with bridge, crane, ROV and Shift Supervisor working in the same environment. Allthough Simsea has an extencive library of simulator models, dry runs will require modelling. Dependant on the learning objectives the customer might want to model subsea equipment, infrastructure, sebed as well as even ships. Because of this, the planning time for dry runs could be 3-6 months.
Complex operations in simulator
In our integrated subsea simulator we can provide our customers with the possibility to carry out dry-runs of complex operations. A dry-run in a realistic environment will reduce the cost of the project as it reduces offshore time and risk for stops in the operation. We can provide modeling services, familiarization, team training and a dedicated room for observation for project personnel. Click here for more information.
Our ROV simulators are from Kystdesign and Fugro. On these simulators we can offer familiarization, training, assesment and testing etc. The ROVs can be used on their own or as a part of our integrated subsea simulator. Please contact us for more information.
