JNPT upgrades its existing Ship Maneuvering Simulator

Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) in a major push and with a vision of augmenting the ports training abilities, superior training outcomes for the pilots, have upgraded to the latest technology for navigation & vessel maneuvering training.

This enhanced ship maneuvering simulator will ensure availability of the latest modules and features to augment JNPT’s training capabilities and ensure superior training outcomes for the pilots. The setup of the simulator was reviewed by Sanjay Sethi, IAS, chairman, JNPT and Shri Unmesh Sharad Wagh, IRS, deputy chairman, JNPT.

The upgrades made to the physical simulator infrastructure such as the Human Machine Interface (HMI) and Consoles will allow training for various emergency scenarios. This will also help Pilots to perform berthing operations in a more ship-like environment where they can assess vessel movement not only from the wheelhouse but also position themselves on the wings whilst the vessel is brought alongside. This has been upgraded by M/s ARI, with indigenous technology.

These measures will help the port to be at par with technologically advanced global ports augmenting JNPT’s stature to be among the leading container ports in the world.
