Your customized maritime centre of excellence

Train or assess your crew, investigate your projects and promote your services by using your own customized maritime simulator, including your own 3D mathemetical ship models. Hiring our facilities or a turnkey solution, all tailor made to your requirements and expectations.


We operate comprehensive maritime-simulation training centres equipped with world leading simulation technology. Use your own 3D Mathematical ship models and sail in your own environment. You can bring your own instructors; we will just look after all technical facilities. However, upon request we can offer our experienced and certified educators to train your crew. Simwave centres are flexible, they adapt to your own corporate branding.


The best way to fill a new position is to conduct a maritime assessment with the final candidates on a simulator, running the same exercise under the same circumstances. Or to make sure that an officer on board is eligible for a promotion, an independent assessment on high quality simulators is of great value, using the exact mathematical models of your vessels in a “real” environment.


Choose Simwave to investigate upgrades and expansions in your port. Research the impact these investments will have on accessibility, safety, environment and manoeuvrability. Doing port studies on a simulator, like navigating with oversized vessels in basins with limited space or water, allows you to determine possibilities, without a huge financial impact or disturbance to facilities and environment.


Invite potential buyers in your own maritime centre of excellence. Use one of our simulators to promote your product or service towards your customers or prospects. By using simulators that work, look and feel like your ship, you will convince potential customers of your capabilities in the specific required operations.


Because of our experience in setting up complex and state-of-the-art maritime simulation centres, our knowledge is available for the entire market. Furthermore, we have experts, such as senior pilots, database developers, applied researchers and mathematical modelling specialists to advise on complex maritime challenges.


Our wide network of partnerships with safety training centres within the global maritime and offshore sector gives us the opportunity to organise practical safety training sessions in addition to the simulator training. Examples include all STCW, OPITO and NOGEPA required safety training.

Private label

Brand your own maritime centre of excellence with your own trainers, ships and scenarios. Your entire environment white-labelled and simulated. Our team of in-house naval architects and 3D modellers create perfect mathematical models of your own unique vessels in no time.

High-end simulators

Simwave uses an integrated ship system approach with best in class simulators. Our simulator park includes a wide range of full mission simulators such as two 360 degrees full mission bridges with projection view, two offshore / tug bridges including DP systems, full mission engine room simulators, as well as multiple part task simulators such as DP, communication, liquid cargo handling, engine room, and emergency response simulators. All integrated.

Scalabe & flexible

We offer solutions with a short time to market. Our centres are accessible 24/7, easily deployed, and you will only pay for what you use.


We will offer global coverage in the main maritime hotspots, with certified quality standards. Simwave’s centres also allow you to simulate any (port) environment.

Independent & certified

Our maritime centres are completely independent and are therefore able to implement the best possible solutions and quickly adapt to market developments. We can offer STCW certified training by our crew of trainers and educators, including master mariners, tug masters and certified DPO’s.


No sailor likes to go back to school in his spare time. That’s why we go the extra mile to make sure every guest and trainee has a good experience. When the serious part is over, the fun might even continue at our in-house pub and restaurant.
