Equinor to install new offshore simulator training systems

Norwegian energy company Equinor has agreed a deal with Kongsberg Digital for the delivery of new simulation systems for safety and emergency training in the North of Norway.

The collaboration is centred on enhancing the skills of operating personnel to protect the environment, prevent offshore incidents, and perform holistic crisis management in offshore operations.

Four K-Sim Offshore simulators will be delivered by Kongsberg Digital, which will be integrated with Kongsberg’s K-Pos Dynamic Positioning systems and NORBIT’s Oil Spill Detection technology, Aptomar. This custom configuration will be used to support offshore procedure training, environmental conservation drills, oil spill detection and recovery simulations, and safety and crisis management drills.

The simulator package will be installed at the North Cape Simulator Centre in Honningsvaag, Norway, which offers safety courses and emergency training for seafarers and personnel in the oil and gas industry.

“The delivery underscores Kongsberg Digital’s commitment to driving innovation, safety, and championing a green shift in the maritime and offshore industries,” said Are Føllesdal Tjønn, Managing Director at Kongsberg Digitals Maritime Simulation Division.

“Our simulation system’s unparalleled capability and adaptability are unique and the integration with the latest generation of NORBIT’s Oil Spill Detection system elevates the training realism and broadens its scope even further.”
