STS Crane Simulator

The STS Crane Simulator Training Pack provides the tools you need to train operators to reach safety and productivity standards faster.

Focused on the skills needed to work with ships of all sizes, this training simulator pack helps develop effective operators by providing transferable skills in a safe environment that is available in all weather and at all times.

STS Crane Simulator Features

STS Crane Simulator - STS-Kran-Simulator

Simulator training, real skills

The STS crane simulator’s operator training program is focused on developing specific skills and understanding required for effective operations. With objective skills bench-marking and trainee scoring, along with customisable reporting, this simulator training pack ensures a fluid transition from training to terminal operations:

  • Progressive learning programs from skills familiarisation to advanced loading and unloading techniques
  • Multiple load types, from 20′ and 45′ containers to breakbulk and liquid storage containers
  • Instructors can inject machine faults, and modify time, weather, and wind conditions

True-to-life simulation

The STS crane simulator training pack accurately reproduces equipment behavior, based on load charts and specifications from crane manufacturers. It simulates:

  • Gantry, trolley and boom movement
  • Spreader system (20’, 40′, 45’, OOG, & overheight containers)
  • Hoisting system and rigging
  • Bulk handling
  • Integrated machine control system

Flexible training and assessment options

The 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.

  • “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.”
