Whether it is your first time exposed to crane lifting operations or you are looking to re-validate your Offshore Crane Qualifications, our simulator is available to meet your needs and the needs of Industry.
ATC Offshore conducts Offshore Crane Training programs incorporating the use of an Offshore Crane Simulator supplied by ARI Simulators. Our Semi-Submersible Rig Virtual World utilises a Kingpost Pedestal Mounted Offshore Crane and Rig Tenders.
Pre-start and post operational checks
Start up and shutdown procedures
Offshore crane deck operations
Discharging and back loading of supply vessels
Lifting of various cargo, bulk loads, hazardous containers
Different load behaviour
Diverse weather conditions including rain, fog, snow and storms
Operations in differing sea states
Realistic rope dynamics
Dynamic lifting scenarios
Day or night scenarios
Communications with rigging crews, vessels, bridge and mechanics
Simulate complexities with a range of crane failures
Interact with other cranes and plant
Conduct simulated personnel transfers
Delegates undertaking training with the use of our Crane Simulator will be challenged with realistic crane failure scenarios. These are designed to instil quick reaction skills and understanding of problems that may occur whilst operating cranes in an offshore environment. Delegates will learn how react to crane malfunctions, procedures to follow and who to communicate with in each event. Emergency exercises included in practises.
Personnel lift with wind effect (swinging)
Drop of load
Boom falling down
Hydraulic oil pressure (low or high pressure)
High water temperature
4 legs sling parted with only one sling left
High engine oil temperature
Manual overload protection system
Automatic overload protection
Emergency driving (back up pump or engine)
ARI Crane Simulators provide a realistic reproduction of the visual, behavioural and operational characteristics while making the operation of the simulator extremely simple and intuitive for trainees.
Our Crane Simulator provides a virtual non-destructive training environment for accelerated, hands on training to both novice and experienced operators. Trainees can repeatedly practise routine and specific tasks to imbibe safe and efficient work practises.
Our ARI Crane Simulator is designed as a portable solution for conducting Offshore Crane Training and Assessments on location no matter how remote or in accessible your work site may be and comes with all the features you would expect to find when operating an Offshore Pedestal Crane. These features include;
Realistic Joystick Controls
LSI Load Safety Indicator
Computer Input and Display
Emergency Stop and Shutdown features
Alarms and Limiting Devices
Push button toggles
Large Screen Display of surroundings
Our ARI simulator has Assessment Feedback features and has a record of training for delegates. This feature allows for the revision of the crane simulation training for assessment purposes with a printable recording of productivity and safe operations such as;
Number of moves
Number of containers handled
Average number of lifts per hour
Total number of collisions
Number of major mistakes
Number of minormistakes
All operator and instructor events are logged and these events can be re-played during de-briefing.
Our ARI simulator meets OPITO standards for training and this all within a realistic training environment before you embark into real-life training, assessments or workplace situation.
