Willem Alexander, Prince of Orange has opened the new head office of Van Oord. Part of the tour was a demonstration of the new cutter suction dredger and hopper suction dredger simulators. The prince was visibly impressed. The cutter and hopper simulators are developed in collaboration with Ivory Lake, and are intended to train crews from all over the world. Read more about the Cutter Suction Dredger Simulator.
“The simulators – part of which we developed in house – show the outside view from the trailing suction hopper dredger, the cutter suction dredger, and the backhoe dredger. We use them to train our fleet crew. This training programme forms part of the Van Oord Academy, which comprises all our development and training programmes.” Read the full story here @ Van Oord
