Mobile Harbour Crane Simulator

A training solution that delivers total operator readiness
for the visual and lifting challenges of mobile harbour crane operations.

Mobile Harbour Crane Simulator Training Pack


CM Labs’ MHC Simulator Training Pack delivers a safe training environment that is available 24/7 and in all weather. It is designed to provide trainees with total preparedness for any potential MHC operating challenge, including complex lift trajectories, compromised views, and unexpected equipment failures.

Progressive training exercises develop operator skills for handling bulk and break bulk (including pipes, coils, bags, rebar, and steel plates) as well as container unloading (20-, 40-, and 45-foot containers).

Training pack features

CM Labs is the only simulator on the market that accurately replicates machine stability—providing real-world training opportunities to help reduce the risk of accidents and improve operator efficiency.

Mobile Harbour Crane Simulator Training Pack - Beauty Shot


The Mobile Harbor Crane Training Pack incorporates CM Labs’ Smart Training TechnologyTM, resulting in a training tool that ensures skills learned during simulator seat time are transferred directly to the real equipment.

  • Progressive learning program replicating terminal operations
  • Working in and around ship holds
  • Lifting and landing loads including bulk cargo, break bulk, bags, logs, and containers
  • Managing multiple loads

With a focus that goes far beyond basic controls familiarization, the MHC Simulator Training Pack exposes operators to conditions that are challenging or unsafe to replicate outside the simulator, including:

  • Adjustable weather, wind, and waves
  • Night-time operations
  • Compromised view due to glare
  • Twist lock failures
  • Rigging breaks
  • Snags

Training Outcomes

The MHC Simulator Training Pack comes with unique operator assessment tools, including a real-time Load Path Graph and real-time Hook Block Map.

The MHC Simulator Training Pack also tracks all operating performance metrics during training exercises, and rolls them up into a single score that updates in real time.

The MHC crane simulator offers additional customization options to adjust training to fit your needs:

Simulated equipment specs:

Max Working Radius: 51 m
Hoisting Height Above Quay: 47 m
Max Lifting Speed: 120 m/min
Max capacity: 125t

Compatible Hardware:

The RTG Simulator Training Pack can be installed on any Vortex port equipment simulator hardware, with different configurations to meet your budget, space, and training requirements. Designed for years of 24/7 operator training, Vortex simulators are built to last.
