Strategically located to serve as a major world container transshipment hub, training of new and experienced operators at FCP is a critical component of port operations and growth.
The new ML4000 is a fully reconfigurable immersive training system with a realistic student/operator cab, five visual channels, and a three degree-of-freedom motion system. The FCP unit is equipped with crane models for a ship-to-shore gantry crane and a mobile harbour crane. The unit is housed in a customised road trailer enabling portability if required.
“We can now train and test operators on their reaction to emergency situations in ways which are not feasible in a real crane,” says FCP training instructor, O’Neil Wildgoose.
