Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT), India’s premier container port, in a major push and with a vision of augmenting the ports training abilities, superior training outcomes for the pilots, have upgraded to the latest technology for navigation & vessel maneuvering training. This enhancement ship maneuvering simulator will ensure availability of latest modules and features to augment JNPT’s training capabilities and ensure superior training outcomes for the pilots. The setup of the simulator was reviewed by Shri Sanjay Sethi, IAS, Chairman, JNPT and Shri Unmesh Sharad Wagh, IRS, Deputy Chairman, JNPT.
The upgrades made to the physical simulator infrastructure such as the Human Machine Inter face (HMI) and Consoles will allow training for various emergency scenarios. This will also help Pilots to perform berthing operations in a more ship like environment where they can assess vessel movement not only from the wheel house but also position themselves on the wings whilst the vessel is brought alongside. This has been upgraded by ARI, with indigenous technology.
These measures will help the port to be at par with technologically advanced global ports augmenting JNPT’s stature to be among the leading container ports in the world.
