New podded cruise ship at Port Revel
published on 24 October 2019 - 157
A new 1:25 cruise ship manned model, the "Voyager", was added to our fleet in 2014. She is 311 m long and is fitted with 2 azimuthing pods (and one Fixipod) and powerful bow thrusters. Training is conducted in emergency conditions like engine failures, crash stops, tight turns ...
Video Presentation of manned ship models at Port Revel Shiphandling Training Centre
Port Revel is used for shiphandling training of maritime pilots, masters and officers on a 5 ha lake with 11 manned model ships representing 20 vessels, and 4 tugs at scale 1:25 and DGPS tracking system. Instructors are former maritime pilots.
Training on the scale models provides experience that could never be gained on real ships for the simple reason that neither ship-owners nor local authorities would allow such risks to be taken. Scale models allow the shiphandler to make mistakes. Scale models allow experimentation on ship behaviour to explore unknown fields beyond the limits of safety.
Periodic training on scale models will maintain your shiphandling skills at the highest level and periodic evaluations will show it.

Two new locks were introduced in 2009 for training in the new Panama lock conditions with or without tug(s). This video shows the famous "piston effect" when entering the lock at an impressive speed of 10 knots with a high blockage factor.

“The world of hydrography is going digital and the S-100 standard is an essential component of that move.”
See how the Canadian Hydrographic Service has led Canada to become one of the first countries in the world to start using the S-100 standard, and how implementing these standards will benefit Canadians through increased safe navigation in Canadian waters.
Video Physical Pilot Ladder Simulator (Chile)
by Maritime Innovation Center Chile
This physical ladder simulator was design for crew training in the ladder arrangement and for all the users especially for pilots.
We think that it will be a very important complement for IMO Assembly Resolution A.1045(27) and SOLAS, Chapter V, Safety of Navigation, Regulation 23.
It was present in the 10th Latin-American Pilot Forum in Montevideo in September 2019.
