Maritime Professional: New Rubber Tyred Gantry Simulation

CM Labs Simulations launched a simulator training solution for rubber-tyred gantry (RTG) operators, which it says is the only RTG training solution that provides exercises for working with overheight, open-top, breakbulk, and liquid containers, as well as standard 20-, 40-, and 45-foot containers.

Via the system, trainees can lock onto containers with twistlocks, and can also manage chain lifts and an overheight frame. The simulation accurately represents twistlock behaviour and provides operators with the realistic experience of locking the spreader onto the container.
