New York Port Engineers' Society Tours MarineSafety Simulators
recent monthly meeting of The Society of Marine Port Engineers of New York was held at the facilities of MarineSafety International, located at the LaGuardia Airport Marine Terminal in New York City.
The group toured the four marine simulators at the firm's Training Center. The feature of the evening was a new ship's engine room simulator, which was demonstrated to the Port Engineers by Luciano Germano, MarineSafety's chief engineering instructor. This simulator is a replica of the control room and multi-level machinery space found in a large oil tanker or gas carrier.
The computer-controlled system uses actual shipboard equipment, and includes all of the noise, heat, and humidity found aboard a real ship. According to MarineSafety director Gene Guest, this degree of realism is necessary to produce a stressful environment for emergency decision-making training.
The Port Engineers' members were very impressed with the high degree of flexibility of the engine room system, which can simulate more than 150 single or multiple malfunctions with an infinite number of variations.
MarineSafety, a subsidiary of FlightSafety International, provides engine-room, cargo-handling, radar, and ship-handling simulator training for more than 40 shipping companies and government agencies.
