Centre for Maritime Simulation

The Centre for Maritime Simulation is one of the most advanced simulators of its type in the world, and is valued by AMCS  clients for the accuracy of its ship models, hydrodynamics and visual modelling.

Commercial studies leading to infrastructure developments to the value of $3.6 billion have been undertaken by the Centre for Maritime Simulation in the past 10 years, including:

  • Research and investigation into port development
  • ship manoeuvring
  • improving ship and port  safety and efficiency, including evaluating tug requirements and optimal usage
  • extending  port operational parameters

The Centre for Maritime Simulation can be used to meet a range of client needs such as:

  • Evaluating new and extended port designs
  • Evaluating tug requirements
  • Extending port operational parameters
  • Standard operating and emergency procedures
  • Simulation studies
  • Incident investigation
  • Handling of new, larger ships
  • Human factors
  • FPSO mooring
  • Human system integration

The simulator fully meets the requirements of Section A–1/12 of the STCW78 Code, as amended, and is used for training in:

  • ARPA, AIS
  • High Speed Navigation
  • Pilotage and Competency Audits
  • Tug operations
  • Customised courses
  • Professional development programs

The facilities provide a diverse capability for maritime research and training, and fall into the categories below:

Bridge Simulator

Ship Operations Simulator

Tug Simulator
