K-Sim® Cargo Product Carrier

Our Product Carrier model is based on a real double hull vessel. The model includes seven tank pairs, where one pair is SLOPs.

 Each tank pair has its own independent lines for loading/discharging as well as for Vapour Emission Control (VEC) and Inerting. Submerged hydraulically driven cargo pumps are fitted in each tank.


For cleaning purposes clean-guns are fitted in each tank driven by two separate cleaning pumps able to clean with fresh water, salt water or cargo. Two separate ballast pumps and ejectors are fitted. Inert gas is made from flue gas or by the use of an inert gas generator, and run through a scrubber and onto the deck. The cargo temperature and density can be set individually. Water and sediments will fall out over time. Tank atmosphere data is calculated continuously. Tank atmosphere is shown graphically on a combustion diagram.



The product carrier model meets the requirements of STCW section A-II/1, A-II/2, A-II/3, A-III/1, A-III/2, and A-V/1.
These sections cover:

Planning and ensuring safe loading

Care during the voyage and unloading of cargoes

Trim, stability, and stress to maintain seaworthiness of the ship


This model is certified and approved according to DNV GL’s Standard for Certification of Maritime Simulator Systems ST-033 March 2017.


The simulator is suited for the following training:

  • Junior officers in basic cargo operations
  • Senior officers in full-scale cargo operations (loading/discharging/ cooling down /venting)
  • Senior officers and captains in advanced cargo-handling operations

The training objective of this model is to understand the total cargo-handling operation. Specific training objectives include the following:

  • Familiarization with all parts of the cargo system
  • Planning a cargo-loading or discharge operation using the LoadMaster load computer
  • Lining up for loading and ballast handling simultaneously (check atmosphere)
  • Simultaneous use of vapor emission control (VEC)
  • Controlling the flow into each tank and the trim/list of the ship
  • Topping up and finalizing loading
  • Preparing and lining up for discharge including inert gas plant
  • Starting up discharge from one or more tanks with one or more cargo types
  • Tank washing (setting correct pressure and washing angles)
  • Emptying and draining final tanks
  • Finalizing departure ballast
  • Heating cargo during laden voyage
  • Venting tanks for inspection/docking using an explosion diagram for each tank (included in the model)
