IMPORTANT COUNTRY NAUTICAL SIMULATORS ARE OCEANICA

Experience with Petrobras America in the Gulf of Mexico had made it clear to Oceania’s engineering team that it would be essential to have a nautical simulator to support future studies and also enable training and maneuvering campaigns in the country.
Shipping companies also felt this need, set up training centers, and became interested in simulators. Oceânica worked to meet the needs of these companies in training and maneuvering simulations on various types of vessel.
Nautilus – A New Chapter in History
Following this, the company inaugurated its Port and Oceanic Simulation Center – Nautilus, a watershed in the history of Oceania, enabling maneuvering and training campaigns with unrestricted and real-time port environment simulations. “We had support from the Netherlands Maritime Research Institute, Marin, a world pioneer in this type of technology and an important partner for the company. The great differential is the history of hydrodynamic validations of the vessels made in the institute’s 7 test tanks. With that, the ships behave as they do” said Daniel Cueva, managing partner of Oceânica.
The full mission simulator is DNV certified and is available to the Brazilian business market, maritime authorities and academia, a simulation center comparable to the most up to date in the world. It enables nautical operations, helping to minimize risks and increasing operational efficiency, so shipping companies use it to train their commanders, reducing accidents.
“Nautilus provides us with training, feasibility studies and new terminal designs at our headquarters,” added Daniel Cueva. The contracts are usually around 2 or 3 years old and confirm the trust between clients and Oceânica.
“We understand the needs of offshore shipping and support companies very well and constantly study ways to deliver more resources to these customers. A protocol for monitoring the actual maneuvers through monitoring is being developed against the simulated exercise so that commanders excel in adjusting the practice” said Afonso Cabrera, manager of Oceânica, who closely monitors all possibilities for improvement in projects.
