Finnish technology group Wärtsilä has supplied its new dual-fuel engine simulators for Wavelink Maritime Institute (WMI), the maritime training arm of the Singapore Maritime Officer’s Union (SMOU). The navigational and technological simulators are a central feature of the simulation suite at WMI.

Sustainable fuels play an integral role in the maritime industry’s goal of achieving net zero in shipping by 2050. However, an important part of this transition requires crew to be upskilled to handle these new and alternative fuels.

The state-of-the-art Wärtsilä simulator technology is specifically designed to train seafarers in the latest efficiency concepts and prepare them for operating with the next generation of marine fuels.

The dual-fuel simulators include a virtual reality element to replicate realistic scenarios with different fuels and engine types. They also incorporate cloud-based simulation combined with Wavelink’s own learning management system to provide blended learning experiences.

“Wärtsilä’s advanced simulator technology allows us to provide the highest quality maritime training, ensuring that our students are fully in step with the transition currently underway in the shipping industry,” Managing Director at the Wavelink Maritime Institute, Mr. Teo Keong Kok, explains.

The simulation suite also includes a full-mission bridge with 270-degree visualization, and a part-task bridge with 120-degree visualization for ultimate hands-on ship handling training in compliance with international standards.
