Centre for Marine Simulation, Fisheries and Marine Institute
At the edge of the harsh North Atlantic, discover a training facility of a different class.
Meet the Marine Institute’s Centre for Marine Simulation (CMS), North America’s most advanced marine simulation solutions provider. We have an edge of our own. High fidelity, state of the art technology, 360° visuals, and motion systems that provide our clients with unprecedented realism.
Come join us for a tour and experience a simulated ballast control room, a tug vessel, and an offshore anchor handling operation. Sail in heavy seas and hit an iceberg without the consequence.
Don’t forget to bring your sea legs.
Offshore Safety & Survival Centre
The Offshore Safety & Survival Centre, a division of Memorial University’s Marine Institute offers a comprehensive range of safety and emergency response training courses to the offshore petroleum, marine transportation, fishing and industrial sectors. The OSSC is uniquely positioned to carry-out high quality, relevant research in the area of emergency response, survival and rescue. The OSSC research unit has expanded significantly in recent years and currently has a team of doctoral level research scientists and technical personnel. This group is conducting research that will inform debate and better, defend decision-making by designers, regulators, operators and trainers.
During your visit to the facility, you will be treated to an overview of the various training and research activities taking place at the OSSC and will have an opportunity to visit our Survival Tank. This tank is equipped with an environmental theater which allows researchers to simulate real world conditions including wind, rain, lightning, thunder, sea spray and sea state. Additionally, you will have the opportunity to fly on our full motion helicopter flight simulator travelling to the Hibernia offshore oil installation.
We look forward to welcoming you to the OSSC soon.
