Two for GlobalSim

In the USA, the port of Baltimore is now using a GlobalSim simulator as part of its training for STS crane drivers. The US$500,000 unit was purchased by the Steamship Trade Association of Baltimore. Trainees from the international Longshoremen’s Association (ILA) spend two weeks in the simulator before getting time in a real crane. With the simulator the port hopes to reduce the time taken to train a crane diver to just 6-8 weeks.


In New Zealand GlobalSim, Inc.has won a new contract to deliver a straddle carrier simulator to the Port of Tauranga in 2020.


Tauranga is a straddle carrier terminal handling over 1M TEU a year, and continuing to grow its business. “GlobalSim will deliver a straddle carrier in a ten (10) 4k display Full Mission Simulator included with virtual reality functionality and a hand-eye-foot-coordination testing device,” GlobalSim said.


The simulator is based on a Kalmar straddle carrier, and will include custom operator controls from the original equipment manufacturer, all motion control components, and GlobalSim’s proprietary 3 degrees of freedom (DOF) motion base. The port has specified a “custom world” replica of its own terminal, a full instructor station for interactive training, and GlobalSim’s “scenario editor” and student database.


“Working with a port like Tauranga who is looking to expand, allows us to help them in that process” said Brad Ball, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at GlobalSim. “We are confident in our ability to deliver the customisations they have asked for in the simulator” .
