Modello di superpetroliera in piena velocità ai laghi Primavera di Pistoia
A maritime academy is training skippers to pilot the largest ships on the high seas, tankers and large container ships in model boats. The new manned model ship handling centre at Timsbury Lake, in Hampshire has recently opened at a cost of nearly 3 million pounds. The site was found after considering some 20 lakes in the South of England and took two years to develop from purchase to completion. The site itself is ideal, it is sheltered, the right depth and is not particularly visible giving the mariners the privacy their need to concentrate on their manoeuvres’. Here, apprentice through to professional mariners and masters are taught the art of handling ships and massive oil tankers in a fleet of miniature super tankers. The centre is one of only 5 facilities around the globe that do this simulation with models and its courses attract participants from as far afield as Australia and Hawaii. It is perhaps not so surprising this academy is based in the UK since shipping has always been a big part of UK industry, especially as some 95% of our import/exports come by sea. Professional mariners partake in many courses over their career to gain and maintain their licence. Although some are initially a little sceptical when first introduced to the models, they often maintain at the end of the course that it’s the best course they’ve ever done. Pilots from some countries such as the US, come back every 5 years to comply with a state requirement. The Centre has 7 scale model vessels, which can represent 9 different vessels and the 30ft models are replicas of full-size ships approximately 1:25 or 1:40 scale models, they cost up to £150.000 to build. They are electrically powered and run for 1 week without recharging. Gordon Maxwell (in the footage) is sitting in a twin screw shuttle tanker built for an oil company to specifically train their people. The model has exactly the same controls as the real ship, and has the correct power to weight ratio as its full sized counterpart. Since it is designed to stop in a scale distance of what the real ship will do, students find it better than practicing in a simulator. As well as skills such as Berthing and other manoeuvres, they hone their skills on dealing with potentially dangerous situations such as if one or more engine stops. The courses are operated on the 9 acre lake offering a variety of berths, basins and channels, including a canal. Different port scenarios can be built using floating pontoons. Another advantage over is simulator is that the models respond to the natural and somewhat unpredictable hydrodynamics which are not easily replicated in a computer based simulator. Finally, because of the scaling factors of the models, 5 times as many manoeuvres can be carried out on a model as opposed to a bridge simulator, or the real ship. By steering them on a purpose built lake, students can practise manoeuvres without risking the lives of other mariners. Indeed many of the real super containers and tankers cost some 300 million dollars so pilot error is a risk worth minimising. Their aim is to prevent disasters as whilst the cost of ships and their cargoes is enormous you can multiply that by 100 if you have a major spillage, indeed even a small incident could cost 1 million dollars. The Warsash Maritime Academy is a proper faculty of the Southampton Solent University. The simulation courses are on average 5 days duration and cost £5,500 per person.

They look like toy boats, but they serve a serious purpose. An outsider at this facility near Grenoble, France, may see grown men riding arounda lake in miniature ships. But these are pilots of the world's largest ships, and they're practicing navigation with meticulously engineered 1:25 scale models of real cruisers, tankers, and containerships. Port Revel Shiphandling Training Centre, in operation since 1967, has had more than 6,000 maritime pilots and merchant ship officers from all over the world train on its 13-acre man-made lake. Wind-, wave-, and current-generating machines simulate real-world conditions, to help the pilots learn how to maneuver in shallow waters and deal with emergencies—in safe conditions. The school recently added its own built-to-scale course of the giant new locks that will open next year to allow the passage of large ships through the Panama Canal. The Panama Canal Pilots Association has made its own training lake but is sending senior pilots and simulator instructors to Port Revel to learn how to teach using manned models. Port Revel has built two large model ships and is sending them along with four radio-controlled tugboats to the Panama Canal training facility. ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.
