Drake Port Simulators

 

Housed in Mersey Maritime’s dedicated Quay Skills Training Suite in Birkenhead, Wirral, is Quay Skills: Dockside which consists of three full size training simulators.

Developed by Drake alongside Mersey Maritime with partners AIMS Solutions the simulators replicate operations on five separate pieces of dockside equipment:

  • Quay Crane
  • Gantry Crane
  • Straddle Carrier
  • Forklift Truck
  • IMV Tugmaster

 

Learners use the simulators to drive virtual equipment in the recreated virtual environment of Liverpool’s Seaforth Container Terminal and Twelve Quays Terminal in Birkenhead; however the software can be customised to recreate any port environment anywhere in the world.

 

Benefits of using simulators to enhance on-the-job training include:

  • No downtime on live equipment
  • Fuel savings
  • Damage limitation
  • Ability to establish aptitude
  • Ability to customise software
  • Accident recreation
  • Hazardous situation preparation
