Konsgberg Maritime is shipping in its Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat (RHIB) Simulator for the inaugural Nor-Shipping Campus, a new event introduced to engage students, the media, politicians and the general public with the maritime industry. As the company's fastest boat simulator, the spectacle is expected to attract a lot of attention, especially as Kongsberg Maritime is allowing visitors to try it out for themselves.

The Nor-Shipping Campus is being held in Oslo's City Hall Square (Rådhusplassen), during Nor-Shipping week and has attracted strong backing from major companies with the mutual goal of promoting the benefits of a career in the maritime sector. The city centre exhibition also holds a social zone, which will give Nor-Shipping 2011 delegates a comfortable and accessible location for networking in the city.

The inclusion of the Kongsberg Maritime RHIB simulator at the Nor-Shipping Campus will provide young people, training institutions, shipowners and others a glimpse into the world of high technology maritime training systems. It simulates faithfully the movement of a small, fast military boat using cutting-edge graphics, high-fidelity sound and six degrees of movement thanks to its full hydraulic motion.

"It's certainly one of our most eye-catching simulators and we're pretty sure that the people visiting the Nor-Shipping campus will agree when they see it and indeed get behind the wheel," comments Marketing Coordinator Anne Voith, Kongsberg Maritime Simulation and Training. "We hope that the noise, vibration, action and high-fidelity visuals persuade students and others to come over and talk with us, so we can explain just how exciting and rewarding a career in the maritime technology industry can be."

Kongsberg Maritime's stand at the Nor-Shipping Campus will also feature a wealth of videos and information about the company, its people and products. The company can be found on stand C02-28 at the Nor-Shipping 2011 exhibition itself, where among other things, it will be highlighting new developments in navigation and automation technology and training.
