    Megamax STS Crane Simulator

    Learn the unique skills required to work in and around the world’s largest container ships with the Megamax STS Crane Simulator.

Megamax STS Crane Simulator

The Megamax Ship-to-shore (STS) crane simulator provides the tools you need to train operators to reach safety and productivity standards faster.

It features an ultra-realistic simulated STS that allows you to train for increased safety and operational efficiency, in a risk-free learning environment.

Competency Based Training

By training complex skills that are unique to working with extra-large ships, the Megamax STS crane simulator helps to lower the number of safety incidents, improve ship turnaround time, and ensure that the actual equipment is being used to its maximum potential on the quay. Operator trainees will benefit from:

  • Progressive learning programs from skills familiarization to advanced lifting techniques
  • Multiple load types, from 20′ to 45′ containers to breakbulk to liquid storage containers
  • Variable machine faults, weather, and wind conditions

True-to-Life Simulation

Using specifications, load charts, and other information from crane manufacturers, the simulated crane is designed with a 30-meter span, a 56-meter water side outreach and a 22-meter land side outreach, accurately reproducing actual crane dimensions and the resulting behavior under various conditions and load scenarios. It accurately simulates:

  • Hoisting, gantry, trolley and boom functions
  • Dual spreader system (20’, 40’, 45’ and 2x 20’ containers)
  • Smart slowdown and sill-beam protection systems
  • 2D camera feeds for working in deep ship pockets
  • CCO Integrated container management system
  • Gantry Anti-collision system
  • Hoist field weakening system

Flexible training and assessment options

The Megamax STS crane simulator offers flexible customization options that ensure training can be adjusted according to your needs:

  • Exercise builder: Add unlimited training exercises in line with evolving training needs

  • Crane performance: Adjust and tune cranes to specific capabilities (accelerations, max speeds, joystick deadband)

  • Scoring: Set your scoring criteria for each training exercise, or use the scoring criteria as defined out of the box

Equipment training packs

From ship-to-shore and ship pedestal cranes, to reachstacker and other cargo handling equipment, we offer a wide range of ports and container terminal equipment training simulators that can run on a single hardware platform.

Realistic simulators are an effective tool to evaluate and assess operators for both efficiency and safety. Tracking vital metrics across the entire training scenario, instructors can review statistics after completion, allowing for detailed after-action reviews and reporting.

Ports simulator hardware platforms

With swappable controls, flexible configuration options, and industrial-grade hardware, CM Labs offers a family of scalable port simulator hardware platforms that can grow with your requirements and budget.

Remote Training Tools

  • “Having the simulator really does ensure that after three weeks, people are getting through the training system. It eliminates the opportunity cost of having a non-skilled operator on site.”
