Help Client Train Maritime Talents with Advanced and Integrated Technology
The EMSD is committed to assisting our client department in training maritime professionals to enhance their skills and preparing them for maintaining safety at sea. By introducing advanced technology and equipment to the Marine Department Training Centre and updating its Full Mission Ship Simulator and Vessel Traffic Services Simulator, we helped our client department train and acquaint their staff with knowledge about harbour traffic control and management and emergency handling to ensure safety in Hong Kong waters.
In collaboration with the Marine Department Training Centre, we integrated multiple software systems and hardware equipment within the simulators of different brands. The integrated technology not only makes the simulators more reliable and stable, but also gives full play to their functionalities and achieves the highest efficacy, enabling local and international trainees to learn to control different types of vessels. These integrated simulators have elevated Hong Kong’s international status in the field of maritime training.
The upgraded Full Mission Ship Simulator software can simultaneously integrate and support three training bridges to perform interactive simulation training in different scenarios. The LED light sources in the video projectors are environmentally friendly and power saving. They can last up to 100 000 hours, 25 to 30 times that of the conventional bulbs used in the past. They save time and cost in maintenance, greatly strengthening the usable capacity of the systems.
We also applied integration technology to link the software of the Vessel Traffic Services Simulator and Full Mission Ship Simulator together. These two simulators with different functionalities can interact in real time and work in co-ordination to provide users with complex and comprehensive scenario simulation training.
The replacement and upgrade exercise of the entire system at the Marine Department Training Centre consists of four contract projects, of which the video projection and display system project - encompassing procedures from technical study, tendering, installation to system testing - was completed in less than one and a half year. Our client department was very satisfied with the new system and equipment and greatly appreciated our team's collaboration spirit and project management quality.
We are happy to provide our clients with innovative technical solutions. For any enquiry, please contact Mr. Pang Kwok-keung, Senior Engineer, at 3757 6027.
