LJMU Maritime Centre

Our simulators are the most advanced in Europe

LJMU Martime Centre's advanced simulators feature two bridges that provide 360-degree field-of-view and five bridges with smaller view. Both facilities are equipped with the modern bridge equipment to enable marine pilots, shipmasters and navigating officers to develop and practice their skills in a realistic but risk free environment. Mariners can be placed in geographically accurate virtual marine environments aboard one of the Centre’s eight ship bridges, which respond and react just like one would expect at sea. The 360-degree field-of-view allows mariners to practice approaching locks and berths, connecting tugs and bringing vessels of all types and sizes safely alongside, incorporating any number of mechanical failures and breakdowns.
