Kongsberg Digital's K-Sim Engine eLearning solution has been adopted by the Maritime Academy of Asia and the Pacific (MAAP) to deliver cloud-based tuition to its student engineers, consolidating its position as a leading adopter of digital technology.

Kongsberg Digital is continuously adding new simulation-based training applications to its digital platform, K-Sim Connect. Already adopted by many training institutes, K-Sim Connect has provided more than 23,000 cloud-based simulations to customers worldwide this year. MAAP has long been a pioneer in the use of simulation-based training tools. K-Sim Engine is designed to provide realistic representations of real engine models, allowing students to practice and prepare for their exams at any time, and any location.

Adm Eduardo Ma Santos, President MAAP said: “The K-Sim Connect platform with its applications and services is a timely and cost-effective solution for the limitations posed by the recent global coronavirus pandemic on maritime education and training in the Philippines. MAAP signed up for 100 simultaneous user licenses that will provide our students continuing access to simulation-based engine room exercises online, without the need for face-to-face collaboration with the instructor-facilitator.”

“We’re very pleased to see how well received our digital solutions for the maritime training market have been since we started rolling them out earlier this year,” said Andreas Jagtøyen, VP Kongsberg Digital. “As a leading educational establishment in Asia, MAAP have always been among the first to adapt to the latest training methods. Their choice to add our cloud-based simulation solutions to their physical Kongsberg simulators is a welcome endorsement of our new digital simulation services.”

Included in the latest contract with MAAP is Kongsberg Digital’s new full-mission K-Sim Safety simulator, which will deliver the ability to carry out safe, realistic advanced firefighting and onboard search and rescue procedures in a cost-efficient manner at MAAP's premises in the Philippines. Using a replica of the layout on board a real crude oil carrier, an interactive 3D environment combines object and equipment models with visuals, exposing trainees to a range of situations related to preventing and dealing with onboard fires. As with all Kongsberg Digital’s simulation solutions, K-Sim Safety is designed to conform with relevant STCW regulations.
