BMT’s integrated navigation and manoeuvring simulator suite has been awarded Class A, B and C certification from DNV GL verifying that it complies with STCW 78 and the DNVGL-ST-0033 Maritime Simulator Systems standard.

This classification award for Rembrandt also includes the use of BMT’s tug simulator and for applications extending to inland waterways navigation. This is in addition to the DNV GL Class S accreditation which BMT Rembrandt has held for over five years.

“The combined DNV GL Class A, B, C and existing S certifications reflect that our simulators provide the highest levels of physical and behavioural realism,” said Dr Phil Thompson, director of simulation and training products at BMT.

“Our new generation of fully-certified simulation technology is more versatile, hydrodynamically accurate, visually superior and all at a significantly lower cost, thus widening the support and benefit that we already provide to our existing customer base."

Support tool

The certification further builds on BMT Rembrandt’s 30-year history as a leading project engineering support tool, supporting marine pilotage, ship operations, port design and risk management associated with complex transportation infrastructure systems.

Rembrandt software is already used by an number of maritime companies and organisations for applications such as training of deck officers, port navigational risk assessments, mooring and understanding complex manoeuvres.

More recently, it has been adopted by several statutory marine accident investigation agencies, including the UK’s MAIB.
