OSC providing crane simulators for new Jan De Nul Group vessels

June 6, 2022  By Ship Technology

Norway-based OSC (earlier called Offshore Simulator Centre) has secured a contract from Jan De Nul Group to supply a high-end crane simulator for its two new offshore installation vessels, Voltaire and Les Alizés.

Based on real physics and the actual vessel models, the crane simulator will allow the company to train its crew members.

Jan De Nul will use the simulator to train deck crew, superintendents and bridge crew to work with giant cranes.

The simulator is said to help realistically simulate complex offshore installations in a safe environment under critical conditions.

OSC projects head Mathieu Edet said: “The commissioning of a high-end simulator for Voltaire and Les Alizés is a project that is in accordance with our philosophy: delivering cutting edge and multipurpose simulation solutions for engineering teams and mission crew readiness.”

Jan De Nul is expected to receive Voltaire, a jack-up installation vessel, and Les Alizés, a heavy lift vessel, this autumn.
