LKK/CNK launched the CTV simulator on January 31 this year. The Crew Transfer Vessel Simulator software was provided by Flint Systems.
🍾 After thousands of hours spent on R&D we eventually could ask the only such inventive with open heart person like Malgosia Bartosik from WindEurope to be Godmather of our virtual CTV! I’m so proud of her acceptance 🙏
31 stycznia w gdyńskim Centrum Nowych Kompetencji odbyła się premiera symulatora szkoleniowego Crew Transfer Vessel (CTV), który wesprze personel morskich farm wiatrowych. Uroczystość uświetnił chrzest jednostki. @KGSpychala @WindEurope @OffshoreWindPL https://t.co/WcE79O5YFO pic.twitter.com/ezTcixQdl2

Tomasz Lisiecki informed: Yesterday, probably the world’s first christening of a virtual ship took place. 🍾
⏳ But we need to back to the past for the moment to understand the context.
👉 Our center has been acquiring experience in training for heavy machinery operators using our unique Virtual Reality simulators with full immersion effect since 2019.
👉 Almost year ago Centrum Nowych Kompetencji and LKK together with their partners begun the adventure with the aim to provide best training course for Crew Transfer Vessel (CTV) operators.
👨👧👧 We were lucky to gather group of enthusiasts and professionalists like skippers, master mariners, CTVs owners, engineers, programists in order to build VR simulator for this purpose.
💰 The project had been supported by grant from Office of the Marshal of Pomeranian Voivodeship. 👍
The simulator based on a realistic simulation in accordance with the physical parameters of the ship’s behavior and the environment in which it will operate, i.e. the influence of waves, water currents, wind and other weather conditions – informed Grzegorz Szatkowski, vice president of the board at Flint Systems.
Therefore, Flint Systems provides a complete system not only to reflect the described conditions, but also to modify them in terms of training. The CTV simulator reflects, among others influence of external factors on the CTV boat and we will use an extensive weather setting system (wind, sea currents, waves, time of day, rainfall, fog).
The simulator will be used for training purposes because of the growing demand for qualified staff needed to operate Polish wind farms – informed Tomasz Lisiecki, CEO, CNK.
We offer modern courses and training using innovative simulation technology in virtual reality VR, which will safely speed up learning and enable you to obtain the license of a professional operator of reloading equipment and other specializations. Only with us full immersion in virtual reality VR – informed Lisiecki
“LKK/CNK is our regular client. Together we now work on the third project. We are happy with intense and fruitful cooperation and hope for other projects in the future,” said Grzegorz Szatkowski, vice president of the board at Flint Systems.
