Liebherr simulator going down under
A new Liebherr simulator is on its way to New Zealand. Port Nelson’s general manager of operations, Matt McDonald, sees the simulator purchase as a “step-up in safety” for the port.
He said: “Training new personnel on the quay is expensive and dangerous, as they learn to handle large lifts, occasionally in windy or adverse conditions."
A range of functionality is essential for the simulation of daily routines and extraordinary situations that machine operators face in the real world of maritime cranes.
Due to the flexibility of the virtual environment, users can run through any load handling situation and simulate harsh environmental conditions when required. Port Nelson ordered the so-called LiSIM classroom solution, which is designed for easy integration into existing training centres, from Liebherr. (kd)
