Briese research and Nautitec create a lifelike virtual simulation model of research vessel „Maria S. Merian”


published on 16 November 2021 48 -

Briese research are extending their cooperation with Nautitec for their research training projects. As from immediate effect, a model of the research vessel “Maria S. Merian” can be used for tailor made training at NAUTITEC´s Leer-based simulator facilities.

After having reproduced a lifelike virtual simulation model of the Briese research managed deep sea research vessel “Sonne” to a very realistic level already in 2018, the partners are proud to announce that the virtual reproduction of the multidisciplinary research vessel “Maria S. Merian” has been successfully completed. The ice-breaking reinforced hull of “Maria S. Merian” enables her to operate in sup-polar regions such as the Norwegian Sea.
Based on this virtual model, 6 nautical officers were able to attend a tailor-made simulation training course last week.

“By simulating these 2 vessels, we are now able to prepare our nautical officers much better for the particular specifications of operating a research vessel” explains Klaus Küper, managing director at Briese Research. In this course, the experience and knowledge obtained from various previous training courses with nautical officers on the “Sonne” model, can be used and processed in the new simulation environment.
Briese Research is manager of 8 research vessels.

“For us, this job has been a special challenge” says Nautitec Manager Georg Haase. Compared to other vessels which are available in the simulator database, these research vessels are technically extremely demanding and have complex functions, which are not easy to transfer from reality to simulation. We are really pleased about the positive reaction of the nautical officers working on these vessels and can summarize the impression that the transformation into simulation has been successful.” Continues Haase.
 
With this new part of their portfolio the Briese Research/Nautitec cooperation has been extended. As a next step, Briese Research are planning to also incorporate ISM-relevant contents into the emergency- and rescue scenarios of the courses and furthermore scientists and research personal will be included in the future too.
 
“Simulator courses, in which the nautical ship’s command and scientists are simulating ship-handling with scientific equipment are increasing the mutual understanding on both sides. This can be highly beneficial for the cooperation between both parts and can also avoid misuse and loss of expensive scientific equipment” thinks Küper.

All India Marine Pilot Association has been formed by a Group of Mariners who care for ’safety and security’ of the Marine Pilots. Although a lot of our Indian seafarers felt the dire need of such a body, it was only after the unfortunate and untimely demise of Capt V P Gupta following his fall from the ladder on 8th August 2019, that pilots and like-minded individuals started expressing their displeasure about the 'Eco-system'.
