Abstract

Autonomous shipping demands reliable propulsion and auxiliaiy machine1y, zero down time,low environmental footprint and intelligent operators who can make correct decisions and takeappropriate actions in a timely fashion. While the first three relate to technologicaladvancements and appropriate operational practices, the latter depends on the knowledge, skills,competencies and attitudes of the operators. This requires adequate training to ensure thatoperators respond effectively in all situations. Thus, the training regimes for operators mustemploy suitable strategies within an appropriate context to impa11 the required competencies.As accident investigations indicate human errors account for more than 80% of all marineaccidents and thus operators must be trained with essential competencies to deal withemergency situations arising from operation, breakdown and accidents. This paper explores thepotential of full mission engine simulators to train operators to handle emergency situations inautonomous ships to reduce the risk of financial losses and effects to the environment.
