Global provider of real-time simulation solutions CM Labs Simulations Inc. has entered into a partnership with Netherlands-based seating specialists EBLO to open a new demonstration room showcasing an immersive Vortex simulator for port equipment.

Along with EBLO’s line of crane seating, the new demo room showcases CM Labs’ Vortex simulator, running rubber-tyred gantry (RTG), ship-to-shore (STS) & mobile harbour crane (MHC) training packs, and more.

According to CM Labs, Vortex simulators for port equipment have been proven to help trainees learn operator skills quickly and safely, thanks to unmatched realism and accuracy in the simulated training environment. The realism of the simulators is powered by CM Labs’ Vortex Studio simulation and visualisation software. This software simulates the real behaviour of cranes, rigging, cables, and loads, validated against empirical and engineering data.

EBLO is a leading specialist in seating solutions designed to improve productivity and well-being for operators across a range of industries including construction, maritime, trucking, and more. It has obtained ISO 9001 certification, and provides bespoke seating for special applications.

CM Labs CCO, Arnold Free, said: “We welcome the opportunity to partner with EBLO”. “Their strong presence and customer relationships further strengthens our mission to focus on aggressive exposure for our port training solutions within the European market.”

Vortex simulators for port equipment are in use at terminals across the globe, from Flinders Adelaide Container Terminal (FACT) in Australia, to Tacoma and LA/Long Beach in the US, to several DP World operations across three continents.
