CM Labs Simulations, developer of Vortex® training simulators, has announced a new operator training solution for ship-to-shore (STS) cranes, part of the Vortex solution suite of port equipment simulators.
The STS Crane Simulator Training Pack is designed to bridge a gap between the classroom and the real equipment. It provides progressive learning for safe lifting operations, improved STS crane productivity, and real world crane operator skills. It can be deployed 24/7 in all climate conditions, as a safe, productive training environment that makes it possible for operators to continuously learn or upskill, even when the real equipment is in use, or undergoing maintenance.
This STS Crane Simulator Training Pack incorporates unique reporting and instructor tools, including an exercise builder that allows instructors to create an unlimited number of exercises, a customisable scoring system, and the industry’s only real-time container path trace reporting tool.
Rigorously field tested by experienced operators and trainers, CM Labs’ STS Crane Simulator Training pack allows trainees to operate a simulated spreader that locks onto 20 ft, 40 ft, 45 ft, and twin 20 containers. It includes operational flippers and twist locks, and also manages chain lifts, a personnel platform, and an over-height frame.
