The simulator is designed to train marine specialists to operate and work at semi-submersible drilling rig without sending trainees to a real operating rig

Simulator features

The simulator allows you to complete the following training programs without the need to send trainees to existing platforms:

Platform equipment

Study the composition and layout of offshore platform equipment

Navigation bridge

Study the composition and purpose of control posts of the navigation bridge of offshore platform


Acquire skills in maneuvering the offshore platform taking into account changing sailing conditions

Ballast operations

Study the theory and train ballasting/deballasting operations of offshore platform to ensure the required stability

Anchor winches

Learn to control platform anchor winches in order to set up a given point, hold and remove it from a given point without the help of support vessels

Supply vessels

Practice interaction with supply vessels


The simulator is supplied under a license agreement in the form of electronically transmitted software with a perpetual, non-exclusive license. The simulator software includes:

  • Displays of control stations of the offshore platform navigation bridge as described below
  • Mathematical model of hydrostatics and hydrodynamics of offshore platform with taking into account various possible sailing conditions
  • 3D visualization of the sailing area for various weather conditions and time of day
  • Functions for managing the learning process – start/stop/pause the simulator; select / load / exercise modification; recording of an exercise and subsequent viewing of completed records exercises for the purpose of their analysis and discussion (debriefing)
