Kongsberg Digital to provide South Korea with maritime training equipment

Kongsberg Digital (KDI) has secured four contracts with maritime training centres, schools and universities in South Korea to provide them with enhanced digital equipment for maritime training.

In particular, the Norwegian provider of software and digital solutions has supplied the Korea Institute of Maritime and Fishery Technology (KIMFT) and the Busan Techno Park Foundation with K-Sim Offshore and DP simulators, in the first half of the year.

Additionally, Kongsberg Digital has recently been awarded contracts by two educational establishments in Korea. Busan National Maritime High School and Incheon National Maritime High School both commissioned KDI, in June and July respectively, to deliver K-Sim Navigation ship’s bridge simulators at the end of 2021.

The new investor in KDI technology, KIMFT, will be using the K-Sim simulators to train researchers and industry personnel in a complete series of offshore positioning operations.

Moreover, another new KDI customer, Incheon National Maritime High School, will be deploying its K-Sim Navigation ship’s bridge simulators to provide students with highly realistic training using vessels, objects and equipment.

Meanwhile, Busan Techno Park and Busan National Maritime High School will be expanding their existing range of K-Sim simulators to enhance interoperability by utilising add-on features on the advanced and dynamic new devices such as offshore mooring, the oil-spill function and SMART objects.

"South Korea is a key global player in the journey towards Maritime 4.0, with its highly successful ship-building and ship-owning companies," said the Executive Vice President Digital Ocean of Kongsberg Digital, Andreas Jagtøyen, who added that "KDI has gained valuable partners to support the industry in this venture, by securing these contracts."

Earlier in 2019, a full suite of KDI simulator systems was delivered to the Korea Maritime and Ocean University (KMOU) and Mokpo National Maritime University (MMU) for installation on two identical training ships: T/S Segero and T/S Hannara.
