GlobalSim is pleased to announce that it has recently contracted with General Scientific Company Ltd. of Bangladesh to deliver a Full Mission simulator to the Chittagong Port Authority (CPA).
The Full Mission simulator heading to Chittagong Port will have interchangeable functionality to train equipment operators on Rail Mounted Gantry (RMG), Mobile Harbor Crane (MHC), Reach Stacker, Container Handler, Forklift, Container Truck, and Ship Pedestal Crane. The system will be constructed and tested at GlobalSim’s headquarters near Salt Lake City, UT, USA. It is expected the simulator will be delivered and installed in Chittagong Port in approximately six months.
“We had an excellent experience working with General Scientific Company and Chittagong Port Authority over the last decade” remarks Brad Ball, GlobalSim’s Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “The training facility in Chittagong Port already has an existing GlobalSim system to train Straddle Carrier, RTG and STS operators. This new Full Mission system will be a welcome addition to what is certainly the finest training center for crane and equipment operators – not only in Bangladesh – but in all South Asia.”
