Simulator Features

A gantry crane is a support structure which is able to span the length of the dock. It has a mobile platform attached, called a spreader. It is able to pick up from two to four 20 feet containers at a time.

The gantry crane simulator is used to train operators of this type of cranes. With this simulator, operators can be trained to control any risk situation in a safe environment that replicates real life situations like accidents, weather changes, and equipment damage, so that they learn the protocols to follow in each of them.

The operator can manipulate the controls, feel movement, and hear sounds while operating the simulator. Also, visual and audio effects replicate a working environment as if he were in a real cabin.
The simulator has a cabin with real controls, located on a mechanical system that provides the sensations of movement, and a system providing visual and audio effects.

  • Performance

    Increasing the economic performance of the actual cranes by spending less working hours on training periods.

  • Learning

    Improvement of the operator's learning speed curve.

  • Control

    Control of adverse situations

  • Safety

    Increased safety for both operators and cranes.

  • Image

    Quality image projection of the port.

  • Virtual Reality

    Construction of an immersive environment based on "Virtual Reality" techniques analogous to the real environment of a port crane control cabin.

Functional models of the correct ships, with correct number of the holds as well as fully functional physical modeling, from hold guides to castle railings. To train both novice and more experienced operators, several types of ships of different sizes are available, with two or three covers per hold.
