Kongsberg lands $15.5m simulator deal with Singapore

Kongsberg has landed its largest ever simulator contract in a SGD 21.2 million (US$15.5m) deal with the Singapore Ministry of Home Affairs to deliver four K-Sim Tactical Boat Handling and Firing Simulators with a 10 year comprehensive maintenance agreement to the Singapore Police Coast Guard in Q1 2020.

The four simulators will replicate different boat types with a 240 HFOV (horizontal field of view) on full motion platforms, with two Instructor Operator Stations and two briefing/debriefing rooms.

Delivery will also encompass project management and engineering, installation, commissioning and testing, and an integrated logistics service.

“We are proud of our proven ability to deliver advanced systems of this calibre, providing Singapore Police Coast Guard with simulation training capability on an entirely new level,” says Tone-Merete Hansen, Senior Vice President of Kongsberg Digital.

“A financial commitment of this magnitude underscores our belief that simulator training is an absolutely crucial resource in the modern, ever-changing maritime environment.”
