K-Sim Fishery (Click)


Training solution improving safety, efficiency and sustainability in

fishery operations

An increased global focus on the safety and productivity of fishing has raised the bar for improved training methods. KONGSBERG’s new K-Sim Fishery simulator is specifically designed to support the education and training of students and crew within the fishery industry.

The simulator enables training in all key operations on board. It simulates the bridge of a fishing vessel manoeuvring and operating in diverse environments and weather conditions. By full integration to state-of-the-art Simrad fish-finding and fish-catching instruments, it enables the exact type of training fishermen needs to build competence.

Through realistic training scenarios, K-Sim Fishery promotes better performance in navigation, fish-finding and fish-catching, contributing to significant safety and sustainability improvements.

Builds competence promoting safety, efficiency and economy in fishing operations like; trawl, purse seine and long line

Realistic physical and visual environment with integrated real fishing gear enabling familiarization and realism in training sceanrios

Advanced hydrodynamic simulation reproducing realistic vessel- and equipment behaviour in various conditions for correct learning

Familiarization and training in fish-finding and catching by use of integrated Simrad fishing gear, including split-beam echo sounder, omnidirectional sonar, trawl- and catch monitoring systems

Intuitive and efficient instructor system, enabling full control of the exercise and replay for debriefing, feedback and assessment to students

3D visualization and physical representation of the trawl in different current layers and on the aft deck to understand the behaviour and load to improve efficiency and reduce risk in operations

Dynamic stability simulation of the vessel in all phases of the catch scenarios

Flexibility to re-configure and expand to adapt to changing training needs
