DP facilities

Kongsberg Dynamic Positioning (DP) Simulators

Lowestoft College is well equipped to provide extensive and realistic simulation of Dynamic Positioning capable vessels and operations including:

  • Kongsberg dual redundant DP2 system with 180° visuals
  • 8 Kongsberg student terminals

The above systems allow a variety of system and vessel types to be simulated in operational scenarios which can be configured to emulate almost any vessel type currently engaged in DP operations.

Using a shore-based simulator for training leads to a number of benefits for the operator, in particular a great range of case studies, operational situations and system failures can be simulated and investigated in a short period of time. Emergency situations arise rarely at sea and must be handled correctly, in a shore-based situation, a lifetime of emergencies can be simulated during the 4 day course without putting vessel or personnel in danger. Operator competence in the handling of such situations is essential if accidents and fatalities are to be avoided.

English and Maths Revision @ The Hub

Lowestoft College Nov 2016 (206)

From March 13th to the end of the academic year, we are running revision sessions – this includes English and Maths for GCSEs and Functional Skills. The aim will be to provide help on some of the areas of these subjects you are finding difficult, to practise exam papers under the guidance of specialist tutors and to give practical advice about revising in these subjects.

As a college, we are advising students to plan at least 2 hours of revision per week; attendance at these sessions can be a perfect way of keeping you on track to reach this goal.

Click the link below to see when these sessions will be taking place.

Good luck in your exams!
