Simulations for 12 cruise ship models and 60 sailing areas were developed including the most popular port calls for Carnival vessels: Los Angeles, New York, Miami, Copenhagen, Stockholm, Singapore and Glacier Bay, Alaska.
The nautical part of the simulation complex comprises four full-mission bridges with 220 degrees horizontal field of view and two additional sets of bridge wings with dome projections, each with a 180 degree field of view. As in the real world, each full-mission bridge has its own safety center for training in abnormal and emergency situations.
Six part-task bridges with 120 degrees horizontal field of view provide for specific operations training and assessment. Each bridge is interfaced with onboard bridge systems used on Carnival cruise ships. Seven instructor control stations are used for monitoring and control of the bridges. There are four de-briefing rooms one for each full mission simulator.
CSMART also received a new modelling station comprising Model Wizard and Virtual Shipyard software, which allow the center to edit and create their own sailing areas and ship models, taking full advantage of Wärtsilä’s simulation R&D capabilities. Fast-time simulation capability allows for fast forward run and repetition of port entry or disembarking which is ideal for port development and maneuvering studies.
The technological simulators section (TechSim) consists of four full-mission engine room simulators, 12 sets of virtual machinery space stations, two high voltage training systems, two engine room simulator classrooms (12 stations each), and four debriefing stations and rooms.
