Kongsberg Digital has launched a new simulator called K-Sim Safety for training maritime officers and crew in firefighting procedures, the company announced on 23 January.

K-Sim Safety delivers practical exercises simulated in a realistic environment for training in all aspects of fire safety, including control firefighting operations on board ships, inspect and service fire detection operations, and extinguishing systems and equipment. The system is designed to reduce the impact of fire vessels, as well as provide planning strategies and tactics to control fire in various parts of the ship, enabling a safer and more effective response to incidents when they occur.

The simulator is based on a detailed 3D representation of a 152,000 dwt double hull Suez Max crude oil carrier with seven decks, which allows trainees to assess situations and determine the best response strategy, implement it and then observe the consequences of their decisions during a debriefing.

K-Sim Safety includes two separate fire team muster stations with a detailed 3D virtual hotel and machinery space application, visualised in an interactive 3D walk-through animation of the entire engine room and four upper decks. It features high quality object and equipment models combined with incidental visuals including fire and smoke, flooding and missing persons to ensure a realistic scenario.

Integration with K-Sim Engine and K-Sim Cargo simulators, as well as K-Sim Navigation, also offers the possibility for crew resource training where actions on one simulator directly affects others. This approach provides focus for clear communications between different roles on board.
