Abstract

This paper presents the latest developments in 3D computer simulation applications, designated for the familiarization with marine machinery applied in offshore industry, especially taking into account the emergency operating procedures training. The paper describes an example of application of new 3D simulation techniques in engine room simulator based on engine room with two medium speed main engines Rolls-Royce Marine – Bergen C25:33L type, where trainees have possibilities to develop operational skills, update their know-how and refresh emergency procedures. This type of engine room is applied on offshore universal anchor handling/supply vessels. This new 3D simulation technique specially emphasizes the relation between simulation and realism of machinery operation. The paper describes also the latest development consisting in the possibility to integrate engine room simulator with bridge part. This widens the possible applications in marine simulation. The basic tasks for computer simulation in maritime education are equally described, taking into consideration the new methods and emergency procedures training. Keywords: engine room simulators, emergency procedures.
