A Liebherr LiSIM simulator
A new Liebherr simulator is on its way to Port Nelson.

The New Zealand harbour has ordered a classroom solution in order to simulate ship crane and mobile harbour operation. The simulator has the possibility of adding further Liebherr crane modules in the future.

The simulator is actually two in one, allowing for training on more aspects of real port operations, with a generic ship crane simulator as well as the LiSIM version of the LHM 550 mobile harbour crane, both utilising much of the same hardware. The ship crane simulation-software features the CBG series, a floating four-rope grab crane with a boom length of 28 metres and a maximum lifting capacity of up to 45 T.

Simulators are globally recognised as a highly effective training method, offering numerous advantages.

"The simulator allows benchmarking of current driver skills and monitoring of drivers using periodic checks, plus can be used to assess new drivers for suitability without the costs associated with running a real crane, such as fuel and wear-and-tear. It will make for safer and more efficient handling in a variety of weather conditions," says Jonny Cook, the port’s container operations manager. "We also expect it to reduce box damage during operations," he adds.
