Founded in 2005, the MSRC is a world-class facility created, designed, owned and operated by working maritime pilots. The MSRC’s mission is to ensure training and development for pilots belonging to the CLSLP and to share its expertise in simulation with other pilots and professionals in the maritime industry. For more information, visit their website at

Owned and operated by working marine pilots, the MRSC provides state-of-the-art facilities that include:

Four fully instrumented navigation bridges, with the capability to provide interactive scenarios with manned tug and large vessel simulations, including Post-Panamax ships, which allow pilots to practice manoeuvring techniques and enhance their skills.

In-house capabilities which include building pilot-grade ship models (over 100 ship models) and customized geographic databases, enabling port development stakeholders to take an active part in determining risk mitigation and validation of new and existing infrastructure upgrades to validate economic development projects.
