Kongsberg Digital (KDI) has increased its presence in the Philippines with a new agreement, under which KDI will supply the campus of Zamboanga City State College of Marine Sciences and Technology with a complete package of full mission and desktop K-Sim Navigation and K-Sim Engine simulators, providing up-to-date simulation of bridge and engine room environments.

This substantial delivery is scheduled for October 2021. Awarded through KDI’s local partner PCI Technologies, the company states that the contract was secured through a recognition of KDI’s console, equipment and software quality, reinforced by a strong local support network and an available local user group.

The Zamboanga City State College now joins the majority of training centres in the Philippines, which employ KDI simulators to ensure that graduates leave with a high degree of competence and a good chance of becoming licensed seafarers.

“For KDI, building a relationship with the Zamboanga City State College of Marine Sciences and Technology not only helps us to assist in guaranteeing the professionalism of future maritime graduates, but also cements our already leading position within maritime training in the Philippines,” said Andreas Jagtøyen, EVP Digital Ocean, Kongsberg Digital. “Zamboanga City is the country’s largest exporter of tuna and other marine products, and this contract confirms KDI’s strong global position within training for crews and operators in the fishery segment.”
