Tolani Maritime Institute upgrades simulator training facilities

Tolani Education Foundation in Mumbai, India, is to implement a range of new simulators to allow students and instructors at the Tolani Maritime Institute to take part in Engine Room, Cargo and Navigation simulator training at the facility.

The delivery will be carried out over the coming months under four separate but linked contracts. A Full Mission K-Sim Navigation Class A Bridge Simulator with projectors forms the core of the system, augmented and integrated with desktop software for an Engine Room Simulator and Cargo Handling Simulator, which host two and three simulation models respectively.

An LTSSP lifecycle management package is also part of the deal, which will see Kongsberg provide on-call scheduled support and annual software updates for the new simulators, designed to keep them at optimum performance during their lifecycle.

“We’re very pleased to have Kongsberg Digital bringing the latest maritime simulation technology to our campus, and to be assured of their ongoing future support through the LTSSP agreement,” said Dr Sujata Naik, Chairperson, Tolani Group.

“These simulator solutions represent the most efficient and forward-thinking products of their kind on the market. This will ensure that the simulation-based training at Tolani Maritime Institute will be of the highest global standard.”

“We envision that in the future a significant part of Maritime Training and Evaluation will be required to be carried out on such simulators; Tolani Maritime Institute will already be fully geared for this.”
