You will form your trainees in real-life conditions

The aim of our port bulk crane simulator is to train operators in the safe apprehension of certain points of vigilance in a sequenced manner and with progressive difficulty:

  • Sway management
  • Emptying the hold under different conditions (on the sides)
  • Loading and unloading a loader
  • Working and communicating with a loader
  • Trimming
  • In-cabin camera control

You will measure and monitor your trainees’ results

During practice sessions, our simulator measures the driver’s skills according to certain criteria and objectives, including:

  • Knowledge of the machine
  • Operating without wasting material
  • Productivity
  • Sway control
  • Percentage of bilge emptying
  • Trajectory following
  • Precise discharge into the hopper
  • Work in safety (especially while trimming)

You will analyze the development of skills, generate individual assessments and evaluations of acquirements.

Our simulators are connected live to our supervision software (GSTA), allowing you to import, store trainee data and export their results at any time according to the training path you have assigned to them: we provide a panel of predefined, turnkey curricula designed for training port terminal operators.
