1. Centre for Marine Simulation

In operation since 1994, the Centre for Marine Simulation (CMS) is an industrial arm of the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University (MI). Operating under MI's School of Maritime Studies, CMS combines its unique North Atlantic location, world-class simulation technology, and industry-driven expertise to solve the toughest simulation problems for its clients.

The Centre is located in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, the capital city of Newfoundland and Labrador and the forefront of Canada's ocean technology industry. The city boasts one of the most sophisticated and comprehensive concentrations of ocean technology organizations anywhere in Canada.

As a centre of excellence, CMS responds to a variety of requests ranging from ship manoeuvring and procedural trials, performance examination and improvements, and customized training to operational efficiency reviews, marine equipment testing, and port design evaluation.

Its clients are globally based and come from a variety of maritime sectors: commercial shipping, oil and gas, port operations, civil engineering, environmental, marine policy and regulation and more.

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.

Our objective is simple:
Improve operational efficiency by enhancing a mariner’s knowledge, skill, and confidence.

 

2. Offshore Safety and Survival Centre – Focus on Fire Fighting

   

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 marine transportation, offshore petroleum, 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 team has expanded significantly in recent years and in collaboration of the OSSC instructional team the group is in an extraordinary position to conduct research that will better inform decision-makers, 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 and Firefighting Training ground.  This Survival 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.  The Fire Training ground is equipped with multiple mock training props (including a 2 level ship structure and two level Oil Rig Structure).  With additional capability to conduct pressurized firefighting, confined space training and fire extinguisher training the OSSC is an excellent place to feel the heat of real world emergencies in the marine and offshore sectors.  If time allows, 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.
