You will form your trainees in real-life conditions

The aim of our gantry crane for dockyard simulator is to safely train operators for certain points of vigilance that may be encountered in real-life conditions, such as:

  • Sway management
  • Containers of varying weights and dimensions
  • Hooking/unhooking a container onto a truck
  • Handling in twin mode (2×20 feet)
  • The sequence of pick and place operations
  • Change of work area
  • Working at night or in fog

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
  • Precise container removal
  • Time spent to hang the container
  • Average pick-up/drop-off time for a container
  • Number of RTG trips
  • Number of cabin movements

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.
