ACP administrator explained that August is to have the lake ready and more than 50% of the civil works is complete
The first two ships scale simulator which is built in Summit must be in Panama and operating in the month of October, reported the administrator of the Panama Canal Authority (ACP), Jorge Luis Quijano.
‘Between August and September they should be doing performance testing on a lake in France by then ship them to Panama. Their arrival takes about two weeks’ Quijano explained.
ACP administrator explained that August is to have the lake ready and more than 50% of the civil works is complete.
The training center is being built in an area of eight hectares and is different from the mathematical simulation, which is practical to have employed so far.
It is a simulation with a scale model ships live. The center will have a lake, the Corte Culebra, ports and boat, only 25 times smaller than its actual size.
The entire project is being done on a scale of 1/25. The ship made the transit will be about 14 or 15 meters long and weigh between 17 and 19 tons, according to the scale of the actual ship.
The advantage of scale simulator that allows you to feel the effects of displacement of the ship, with the difference that is five times faster. With the mathematical simulator, however, you can see but not feel; You complement one another.
The Center for Simulation, Research and Maritime Development has existed since 1983 when the Canal was under the administration of the United States. Then, he operated under the name of ‘Maritime Training’.
Now called ‘Sidmar’, the initials of the center but still maritime training unit.
