Mobile Harbour Crane simulator- port crane equipment

Accelerate Crane Operator Training

With the Vortex (MHC) mobile harbour crane simulator, apprentices go beyond learning basic skills, and prepare for live operations by practicing container, breakbulk and bulk lifting best-practices. Gaining more hands-on experience with more training time, operators are ready for safe, productive live operations sooner.

Discover why Vortex simulators are used by ports and terminals around the world.

Competency Based Training

When you train students on a Vortex MHC simulator, they learn how to follow your processes and safety rules. This ensures skills developed on a Vortex simulator are transferred directly to the real equipment:

  • Progressive, skill centric learning programs from skills familiarization to advanced lifting techniques
  • Lifting and landing multiple load types including bulk cargo, break bulk, and containers
  • Crane driving with realistic port activity, such as vehicles, dock workers and other cranes
  • Adjustable weather, wind and waves

True-to-Life Simulation

The Vortex Mobile Harbour Crane simulator is accurately modeled with correct physical and dynamic properties, such as weight, speeds, accelerations and forces. It simulates:

  • Luffing, slewing and hoisting movement
  • Dynamics of different load type
  • Cable dynamics delivering realistic swing
  • Driving mechanics and terminal traffic
  • Outrigger deployment and loading
  • Crane user interface simulation
  • Variable weather and wind conditions

Trainee Performance Management

The Vortex MHC simulator offers flexible customization options that allow the crane simulation to be adjusted to customer needs and capabilities:

  • Scenario editor: Create new scenarios in line with evolving training needs
  • Crane performance: Adjust and tune cranes to specific capabilities (acceleration, max speed, joystick deadband)
  • Scoring: Set customer-specific, objective scoring criteria for each scenario.
  • Branding: Customer logos can be integrated within the environment, on the cranes, and on after-action reports
  • Further customizations: Available upon request

Complete training solutions for port operations

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 apprentices-in-training 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.
