KSRC Simulation Centre carries out test simulation of tankers traffic in Sabetta (photo)

Simulation Center of KSRC (Krylov State Research Center) has carried out test simulation of the traffic of large capacity gas tankers in Sabetta and at the approaches to the port (Yamal), KSRC told IAA PortNews. The participants of the meeting dedicated to the demonstration of the simulation complex capabilities attended by the heads of Federal Marine and River Transport Agency (Rosmorrechflot) have found the facility to be generally up to the task. 
The facility designers think it is necessary to improve the math model of a gas carrier, to develop a model of a line icebreaker and a port icebreaker of Atomflot which is under construction today, to refine the model of port Sabetta and to develop the management body.
Rosmorrechflot says the decision will soon be made on the customer and the contractor of R&D project on modeling of navigation within the port Sabetta and at the access channel in the Ob Bay.

The Krylov State Research Centre is one of the world’s major ship research & design centres established in 1894. Over its century-long efforts in the field of innovative R&Ds for the benefit of national shipbuilding, in the best interests of the country’s defence and economic development, the Krylov Centre has accumulated the wealth of unique expertise in development of naval ships, commercial vessels and offshore structures. The Krylov Centre responsibilities cover the full scope of ship qualities including seaworthiness, strength, powering, acoustics, electromagnetic signatures, nuclear & radiation safety, definition of ship concepts meeting the combination of the above requirements.
