Delivered an engine control console simulator equivalent to the training ship “Kaiho Maru” for Okinawa Fisheries High School

An engine control console simulator was delivered to Okinawa Fisheries High School. As the simulator previously used at the school’s training facility had been in use for 15 years, it was replaced with a new system. The simulator is used for training by connecting to an engine generator simulator and monitoring engine conditions such as exhaust gas temperature.

Okinawa Fisheries High School has a marine technology department and trains students to become officers and engineers onboard. The simulator is equipped with the same engine control console and alarm monitoring and control system as the sixth generation training vessel, “Kaiho Maru”. By operating switches on the “dummy sensor panel,” it is possible to create a situation in which various accessory equipment other than the engine is in operation.
Students can learn troubleshooting on land by reproducing the same onboard environment as that of the “Kaiho Maru”, which will be completed in 2021 and equipped with the latest equipment.

In recent years, the marine industry has faced a shortage of workers due to the aging of the crew. Under such circumstances, more than 80% of the students who studied marine technology at Okinawa Fisheries High School have found employment in marine companies. We are honored that the simulators we have produced are being used to help train the future leaders of the marine industry, and that we are contributing to the development of the industry.

Training simulators can be customized upon request. For more information, please click here.
