New Concept for Operator Training

Modular training course programme uses state-of-the-art simulation technology.
At this year´s TOC Europe in Hamburg, Germany, Terex Port Solutions (TPS) is presenting a newly designed training programme for harbour crane operators, which combines the many years of experience of its instructors with the far-reaching possibilities of simulator training courses. This new programme will help crane owners over the long term to fully exploit the potential of Terex® Gottwald harbour cranes in terms of performance and cost-effectiveness.

Modular concept
The new concept offers specific modules, ranging from crane operator evaluation to safety training for experienced operators. Training courses with the new simulator are a central component of the comprehensive training programme from TPS.

Alexander Bongart, Head of the Training Department at TPS in Dnsseldorf, Germany, is delighted about the new possibilities, ´By individually combining the new simulator training modules with proven on-site training courses, we offer every crane owner customised concepts for high-performance and safe cargo handling.´

Investment in new simulator
The simulator presented at TOC Europe in Hamburg uses state-of-the-art technology, including motion base and Oculus Rift. Thanks to the integration of original components, such as the crane control system, crane operator seat, joysticks and Visumatic® monitor, especially realistic training scenarios are possible. Bongart confirms, ´Our new simulator satisfies the highest requirements and during the development phase, experienced crane operators were impressed with how realistic the simulations were.´

Simulator training courses are especially safe since, in simulated extreme weather conditions and dangerous situations, real damage is ruled out. Terminal operators are using this cost-effective method more and more often, so that they can also use their crane for productive handling in the terminal while operator training courses are taking place. ´Another major advantage´, Bongart concludes, ´is that future crane operators can be trained with the simulator before the harbour crane is delivered.´

Training courses with new simulator are central component of the comprehensive training programme from TPS.
