Modelling and simulation offers powerful ways to support a wide range of project planning and operational decision making. This can range from the design of ports and shore-side / offshore terminals through to navigation in restricted channels of ships or offshore platforms. Moreover, it allows the testing of operational scenarios including emergency response planning, tug availability and the impacts of propulsion or steerage equipment failure.
Whether planning new port developments or reviewing existing operations, BMT REMBRANDT’s hydrodynamic accuracy and flexibility can play a key role. We have many years’ experience in all aspects of ship manoeuvring from full-scale trials, free running and captive model tests to mathematical prediction and simulation.
Our ship hydrodynamic models are fully calibrated against sea trials, pilot cards and mariners experienced in the navigation of relevant vessels. A wide range of environmental conditions are captured. These include: reduced visibility, day/night settings, wind and current shielding, multi-directional swells and spatially variable current flows. Physical phenomena such as squat, bank effects and ship-to-ship interaction are all modelled.
Our marine navigation simulator is at the cutting edge of autonomous navigation, supporting the development of future remotely operated vessels through to fully autonomous vessels. BMT REMBRANDT is used by key marine industry partners as a core component of their autonomous navigation system.
Our DNV certified maritime simulator is ideal for ship officer and marine pilotage training. Meeting international standards for maritime training, BMT's REMBRANDT can play a crucial role for the initial training of new entry pilots, continued professional development for experienced pilots and ship handling manoeuvring training for ship officers.
Our ship simulator, can assist in the investigation of a maritime accident through simulating events with the vessel's recorded electronic data. By providing in-depth marine accident analysis, were helping authorities to understand the complexities of a shipping accident, come to a successful resolution and define mitigating measures.
