Chalmers's maritime simulators

​At Campus Lindholmen there is Sweden's most extensive simulator center for education and research in shipping.

Full mission bridge simulator

In our Full Mission Bridge Simulator, it is possible to do a complete simulation of the operations performed on a real ship. Maneuvering takes place in different weather and environments, including in restricted areas.

Cargo Operations Studio

Cargo Operations Studio cargo simulator develops training and loading studies for boarding, terminal and land-based occupations. With the help of modern technology, the reality is rebuilt with regard to technical interfaces for loading and unloading, the journey's implementation and market, as well as communication interfaces between the ship, operator, customer and supplier.

Nautical Operations Studio

Our Nautical Operations Studio (NOS) consists of six Kongsberg desktop vessels, with four 24-inch screens, two for visual and nautical instruments, and two that can be started as radar or ECDIS. One bridge is used as the instructor and on the other five stations the the instructor program can also be run to build or run exercise locally on each bridge.

Global Maritime Distress Safety System Simulator

Our GMDSS simulator (Global Maritime Distress and Safety System) provides opportunities for students to learn how to handle all GMDSS equipment for ROC and GOC-equipped vessels. Calling procedures, emergency and security procedures are practiced with different communication games.

Engine operations simulator

The engineers spend a lot of time here to train the operation of the engine room's different systems. The simulator is also used in other areas of education, such as language, control technology, thermodynamics and flow theory and more.

Bridge Operations Simulator

Our bridge simulator from Kongsberg consists of five identical docks. Here are courses in navigation, radar navigation and anti-collision navigation using ARPA, ECDIS and maneuvering.

Dynamic positioning

Dynamic positioning (DP) is widely used in the Offshore industry to carry out advanced operations for a long time, requiring high position accuracy.
