Support contract extension keeps Australian Maritime College simulator facilities at the cutting-edge

7. May 2015

The Australian Maritime College (AMC) has opted to extend its Long Term Simulator Support Program (LTSSP) with Kongsberg Maritime for a further 5 years. The LTSSP ensures that all Kongsberg Maritime simulators installed at AMC's sites in Launceston and Perth are up-to-date and operating optimally. Additionally, the LTSSP provides AMC the opportunity to upgrade to the new K Sim Navigation technology platform.

AMC is one of the largest maritime training organisations in the Southern Hemisphere and is highly regarded for its work in Dynamic Positioning, ship handling and engineer training in addition to hydrodynamic research. Across its sites in Launceston and Perth, AMC provides a diverse training portfolio, using a combination of Kongsberg Maritime Ship's Bridge, Engine Room, DP and Ballast simulators. The LTSSP is structured to support these systems operationally and to incorporate planned expansion during the period of the contract.

"Our customers demand the best simulator systems available, and expect them to perform optimally with the latest developments and capabilities. Our LTSSP with Kongsberg Maritime helps us to achieve this," comments Dean Cook, Chief Executive Officer, AMC Search. "Maritime simulation technology changes fast but the LTSSP ensures we can offer the most up to date technology as and when it is developed. The program means our partnership with Kongsberg Maritime is flexible, so we can work together to ensure the success of several development plans we have underway."

"With this new LTSSP, AMC can be certain that its facilities will continue to be maintained to the highest standards, whilst receiving the latest software upgrades," adds Tone-Merete Hansen, Global Sales Manager, Kongsberg Maritime. "The LTSSP includes the opportunity for AMC to migrate its Ship's Bridge simulators to the new K-Sim Navigation system, our latest navigation simulation platform designed to enhance ship handling training through enhanced realism and instructor functionality."
