Jan De Nul Group New Crane SimulatorJan De Nul Group ordered a crane simulator covering its two offshore installation vessels Voltaire and Les Alizés, soon to be delivered. The crane simulator will be based on real physics and the actual vessel models.
 
The partner for the development of this simulator is the Norway-based company OSC AS (previously known as Offshore Simulator Centre). The device will offer the chance to operators, deck crew, superintendents and bridge crew to train the specific skills and techniques required to operate the cranes, in a safe but realistic environment. It will allow them to prepare for different work situations, such as working in extreme weather conditions, with heavy loads and strict installation tolerances. Various mission equipment, such as the motion-compensated pile gripper, including the communication and interactions between the different persons involved in lifting procedures, will also be a key aspect of the training package. The simulator will also be used during engineering and initial feasibility studies for projects and tenders.
