digital world it is possible to conduct most offshore operations in our
advanced full-scale simulators before you go offshore. No footprint there!
A modern subsea simulator park
like we have at Simsea, is an excellent arena for testing or even better; conduct
a complete dry run of your operation! These full-scale integrated simulators can
run most offshore operations.
No footprint here!
And you personnel will be familiar with procedures,
equipment, seabed and other on scene conditions when they finally reach the
destination offshore. They will be on top of the situation and know that they
master the challenges and have this good feeling of professional confidence in
the project and in each other. Of course, such confidence is a prerequisite for
efficient execution offshore!
Our facilities consist of several
real ship bridges with DP,
rooms, offshore crane,
‘shift supervisor’ desk
and – the relevant field’s existing infrastructure and typography.
In these simulators, the
operators have a focus on the solutions, the equipment, the procedures and the tooling
on a quite different level then by getting a presentation in a meeting room:
Tooling design and detailed sequence planning for the operations are tested and
confirmed; contingency operations and parallel operations are identified. By joint testing of procedures and task
plans you will avoid stops in the operations offshore and redesign on deck due
to unforeseen challenges. Simulator tests, dry runs, etc. should be done by
onshore and offshore personnel, together, reducing the cost of sending a lot of
onshore based personnel onboard for many days. And not to mention: You can do your HAZID and HAZOP by doing the
operation instead of talking about it in a crowded meeting room.
After such preparation’s
footprint and costs will definitely be reduced.
Many shipping companies have experienced unexpected issues with the electric propulsion system on their ships. They have had to ensure that incidents are properly investigated and that prevention measures are deployed to avoid reoccurrence of similar problems.
One of the actions needed is to enhance the electric competence of the engineers onboard the vessels. The main purpose of such training is to contribute to
closing an identified competence gap in the customer’s current shipboard organizations related to existing electrical propulsions machinery,
bridging the competence gap between engineers and ETO’s and
develop the understanding of each other’s roles and functions. Simsea is currently running a training session like this for one of our customers.
After the course, participants should have an in-depth understanding of purpose, functionality, interdependence and operation of • Generators • Switchboards • Transformers • Converters • E-motors • Gearbox which are the main electrical components in the electric system onboard.
Special emphasis will be put on issues primarily related to the variable speed converter system: • Connections • Ethernet switch • Fast Link cable • IGBT • PCB & Capacitor • Relays • Snubber Capacitors In addition, the Engineers shall be able to handle any emergency and crisis scenarios.

One of the main challenges in running such training
is to maintain an operational rather than an engineering terminology and focus
during the lectures and to demonstrate professional challenges and solutions by
employing realistic simulators. Often, courses held by suppliers of electric
solutions do not meet such an operational focus and thus the learning outcome
