As part of the contract, Kongsberg Maritime will provide its world-class Polaris and Neptune Simulators for navigation and engine room training to the school’s new facility.

The scope of supply includes a ship’s bridge simulator, engine room simulator, Polaris Crisis Management/Oil Spill simulator, GMDSS trainers, instructor stations, Exercise Area Database Creator, full mission ERS and target ship, and own ship hydrodynamic models.

It is a priority for the Ministry of Transport that training centers are able to deliver world-class mariners for the global manning of ships and Kongsberg Maritime Simulators enable us to provide students with the skills and experience they need to become the best seafarers,” comments Mr M. Chairul Djohansyah, ST, M.Mar.e, Principal of Barombong Marine Merchant College. “The installation of this training technology shows our commitment to the provision of outstanding education at all levels.”
