New Training Simulator Enhances Crane Operator Training

12 November 2014

In a pioneering development for the industry, Modern Terminals started using a training simulator for Quay Cranes and Rubber-tyred Gantry Crane operators in November. With the goal of continuously enhancing both the safety of operations and standard of training, MTL’s groundbreaking crane training simulator is the first in the terminal operations industry in Hong Kong. Similar to the functions of a commercial aircraft pilot training simulator, MTL’s training simulator can be configured to provide training in a number of different scenarios – for example different weather conditions, vessel types and special cargoes to be lifted. When compared to traditional training methods, the training simulator allows both existing operators and new trainees to significantly enhance their skills in handling different scenarios through more hands-on practices.
