Terminal Zárate in Argentina finalises new crane simulators with GlobalSim

Published by

In the heart of the Argentinean industrial belt and with a well-known history in port and logistics operations, Terminal Zárate recognised their need for a crane simulator.

“When we began revamping our logistics, the fundamental essence was to train our staff and develop operators to become more efficient” says Gustavo Oliver, general manager at Terminal Zárate. “We knew that incorporating a GlobalSim simulator into our program would be just the element we needed to accomplish our training goals.”

The first crane simulator is GlobalSim’s Essential Plus system—an enhanced platform with various configuration options that will include the rubber-tyred-gantry (RTG), mobile harbor crane, and ship pedestal cranes. The second is a portable virtual reality system that will provide training for operators on the hydraulic telescopic crane.

“This is an exciting project for GlobalSim as we look forward to partner with Terminal Zárate to provide these simulators” said Oscar Delgado, international sales director at GlobalSim. “Terminal Zárate will have the ability to conduct simulated, real life situations seen in their area and cut the time and costs of their training.”

The simulators are currently being developed at GlobalSim’s headquarters in the Salt Lake City, Utah area. Once completed, the systems will undergo testing before being installed at Terminal Zárate in Q2 2019.

“GlobalSim’s simulators are as real as the actual equipment” remarked Oliver. “We know it is going to make the transition to actual equipment easier for our operators.”
