The UK's largest ship and port simulation centre
With the launch of the UK's largest ship and port simulation centre at our Southampton campus, we offer ship's officers, harbourmasters, pilots, port superintendents and other maritime professionals access to exceptional training using the very latest facilities.We have invested £43 million in our maritime training and education facilities. Our new maritime simulation centre will sit alongside Timsbury Lake, one of the world's leading scale model ship handling centres, as well as our new training centre for officer cadet education.
For over 70 years, we have provided first-class education, training, consultancy and research services to the international maritime, superyacht and shipping industries - covering career qualification programmes, STCW safety courses, continuous professional development, and more.
Our new maritime simulation centre ensures we continue to deliver the very highest standards of professional ship and port training.
We're developing a number of new specialist training courses, including dynamic positioning, vessel traffic management and ice navigation.
Everything in the new centre will be networked for joint exercises between bridge and engine departments, or ship and shore.
The simulation centre will feature hundreds of different ship models, which can be used by cadets and maritime professionals.
Our new world-class simulation centre enables seafarers to train on the very latest specialist facilities using Wärtsilä technology:
The virtual shipyard uses the latest digital twin technology to test ships which are in the process of being designed, or to create a comprehensive 'digital twin' of an existing vessel. This allows officers to train in a virtual environment mirroring their own workplace.
The virtual shipyard is also available for our yacht design and production students to use, enabling them to test their designs in a virtual environment before testing them in our 60m towing tank.
