In advanced offshore operations, practicing standard procedures and emergency situations prior to a mission is crucial to ensure safety and efficiency during often complex operations. While training on actual vessels, rigs and cranes can be too costly, risky or impractical, simulation training provides the best solution to ensure your crew performs with the precision and high standards required.
The K-Sim Offshore provides a safe and cost-effective virtual, yet fully realistic training environment. In the simulator mistakes can become lessons learnt without risking lives or damage to vessels, equipment or the environment.
K-Sim Offshore simulators provide training for most types of offshore vessels and configurations. The simulator system integrates with an advanced physics engine, in addition to hydrodynamic modelling. This allows vessels, objects and equipment to behave and interact realistically. which is extremely important for making competence training adaptable to real-life operations.
In a simulator, crew and operators are able to:
• test scenarios prior to a mission
• learn and practice daily procedures
• develop attitudes & best practice
• enhance team skills & understanding
• gain vital skills crucial for handling emergencies
K-Sim Offshore is the essence of high-fidelity simulation. It has a modular design and can be equipped with all the instrumentations and controls necessary to operate a wide variety of workplaces, such as offshore support vessel forward and aft bridges, mobile offshore unit control room and crane operator cabin.
Accurate real-time physical modelling ensures that for instance anchor chains, lines and crane wires, behave realistically with the tension and forces exhibited in the real world. All objects in the visual scene behave realistically with rigid body dynamics, friction and collision detection, which is extremely important for a realistic learning experience.
Together with a state-of-the-art 3D visual system and the many integration possibilities with additional equipment and simulators, K-Sim Offshore has been recognized as the most advanced simulator within offshore vessel operation training.
K-Sim Offshore is extremely flexible and can be customized to meet your exact training requirement and budget. It can be delivered from a PC based desktop system through to a fully equipped aft and forward bridge, optionally on a six degrees of freedom motion platform.
The flexibility of K Sim Offshore enables expansion at any time, either with new instruments, workstations and complete integrated bridge systems, or even with other simulators for crew resource management training.
For operations in environments where human error can have devastating effects, it’s often required to train essential crew in the same exercise. K-Sim Offshore supports interdepartmental crew training through interface to other K-Sim simulators, including: Navigation, Offshore Crane, Engine and Dynamic Positioning. The integrated solution enables focus on vital human factors such as:
K-Sim Offshore provides training for wind farm operations, such as:
Our offshore crane simulator system, the K-Sim® Offshore Crane, offers an efficient method of training crane operators in the complex interaction between the crane and the ship’s bridge, deck and platform. The simulator system can be configured for crane operations on various offshore vessels and platforms. It is certified by DNV and meets a range of training objectives for individual task and team training, such as:
K-Sim Offshores flexibility enables an unrivalled variety of training possibilities including anchor handling, ship handling in an offshore environment, emergencies and advanced integrated team training scenarios; where every aspect of a demanding operation is simulated in real-time.

Control the exercise and assess the student’s performance
K-Sim Offshore Instructor System is designed with the user experience firmly in focus. The award winning instructor system provides the instructor with a powerful and efficient tool to design, control and assess customized exercises for individuals and teams.
To train critical operations the instructor can introduce different types of faults, which can be set on equipment on board, propulsion problems, fire or other. With this pedagogical tool, monitoring and assessment of student performance has never been easier!
All K-Sim simulator systems and models within Class A, B and C are certified by Det Norske Veritas (DNV) according to the current standard DNV-ST-0033 Maritime simulator systems.
All K-Sim DP (Dynamic Positioning) simulators are complaint with the Appendix E – NI DP Simulator/Equipment specification issued by Nautical Institute in the Dynamic Positioning Operator Training Scheme Accreditation Standard.
