ST Engineering Antycip has delivered its largest-ever port simulation system to The Bristol Port Company – including full training – in the space of only six weeks, despite difficulties created by the pandemic.
The company also helped to specify a room to accommodate the 10-screen simulator in The Bristol Port Company’s newly renovated training centre, which includes an instructor operator station to help with remote access and control of the main simulator functions and scenarios.
Amir Khosh, commercial and project manager at ST Engineering Antycip, was on-site to oversee the installation and head up the subsequent training.
“The Bristol Port Company is a major port in the UK, and in order to boost safety and productivity on site they required this state-of-the-art training device which will help shape future training and industry standards,” he said.
Using simulators for operator training gives another dimension to the training conducted at the port, allowing operators with diverse skill sets and backgrounds to conduct progressive training in a safe and risk-free environment.
