The Ballast Control and Cargo Handling Simulator

Marine Institute

The ballast control simulator was commissioned in 1994. This simulator is used to replicate operations conducted in the ballast control room of an oil rig. The simulator is mounted on a two degree of freedom motion base and is supplemented by desktop trainers.

Float-on/float-off vessels can also be simulated.

The cargo handling simulator, also commissioned in 1994, is collocated with the ballast control simulator. This simulator is used to emulate the operations of cargo control rooms onboard crude carriers and product carriers.

Specialized modules permit crude oil wash and inert gas simulations.
