SAAM Terminals invests in training simulator


SAAM Terminals has invested $500,000 in a simulator for CM Labs Simulators to train new crane operators while enhancing current ones with improvement exercises.

The controls are replicas of those on the actual equipment so that exercises can be recreated in changing environments, and common failures can be simulated, significantly improving operator safety and performance.

Initially, the simulator will be installed at San Vicente Terminal Internacional (SVTI) in the coming weeks.

Four crane operators from this port have already been trained in Canada and will be in charge of training their colleagues, initially at STS and MHC.

One reported advantage is that the equipment is mobile and can be installed at any terminal operated by SAAM Terminals.

“This equipment is pioneering in the Chilean port industry,” said Gastón Moya, SVP Human Resources and Sustainability for SAAM Terminals.  

“It offers ground-breaking graphic realism and accurately emulates the movements and forces applied during crane operations. It features screens that replicate all operator viewing angles, providing an immersive experience. In addition, the sounds have been recorded from real equipment to make the simulation even more real.”

“This simulator is a strategic asset for the company. Combined with the port specialty training packages developed with Fundación Chile and CEIM, it will enable us to train new operators and retrain existing ones, providing an essential tool for continuous skill development and efficient, safe operations,” added Moya.

Just recently, CM Labs Simulations announced the release of a new simulation training solution for double-empty container handlers.
