The Broome Maritime Simulation Centre is based at the North Regional TAFE's head office in Broome, Western Australia. The Centre specialises in state of the art maritime simulation services for new and existing ports. Providing services for the research and design phases of new port development through to the operational procedures for existing port operators, the BMSC has carried out numerous projects for Australian and international clients over the past 4 years.


The facility runs a Transas NTPRO5000 simulator that conforms to International Maritime Organisation (IMO) Class A compliant, certified by Det Norske Veritas (DNV). The Transas system raises the standard of the BNSC to a world class simulation center, which has been used widely by industry clients including BHP Billiton, Chevron, KBR, AEComm, Sinclair Knight Mertz, Worley Parsons and various Port Authorities. The center has completed studies for international clients and has further inquiries from overseas companies to complete their training in Broome. The system has the flexibility to enable the quick turnaround of changes to area databases, the ability to model particular ships in-house, saving costs and time. This enables the simulator to be used effiectively and efficiently for new port developments during the design phase to validate from a maritime the engineered designs.
