Advertorial: Republic of Korea Navy Selected Meteksan Defence’s Damage Control Simulator
Offering the most up-to-date and modern solution in its field, through the Damage Control Simulator it has developed to meet the requirements of naval forces worldwide, Meteksan Defence is now adding the Republic of Korea to the list of customers for its simulator. The tender that the Republic of Korea Navy had opened to meet its need for a Damage Control Simulator was won by the Inno Simulation and Meteksan Defence partnership, which managed to outpace its competitors. The project contract was signed on February 24, 2017.
While the system to be established will take our company’s simulator solution as a reference, the company will be working together with Inno Simulation in the Republic of Korea to ensure the highest level of domestic contribution. Thus, under our company’s support, the Damage Control Simulator and its subsystems will be manufactured in the Republic of Korea with local resources.
After developing the Damage Control Simulator and performing its first delivery for the Turkish Naval Forces Command, Meteksan Defence had also won the tender opened by the Royal Navy of Oman, and has successfully delivered the system to this country as well. With the contract signed on February 24, 2017, the Republic of Korea Navy is set to become the third user of the Meteksan Defence-developed Damage Control Simulator. The simulator is expected to be delivered in 2018.
The simulator enables training in a realistic platform in accordance with international and naval standards, such that the crew can intervene against damages on board ships involved in accidents or hit by hostile fire, and carry out water evacuation and isolation activities promptly and effectively.
With its modern technological design, suitable for personnel of all levels from basic to advanced, the system offers adjustable difficulty and automation-controlled training options, while its adaptable system reports enable training assessment, comparison and reporting.
Sharing his thoughts on the signed contract, Tunç Batum, President of Meteksan Defence said: “As Meteksan Defence, we are excited to be meeting this important requirement of the Republic of Korea Navy with the most current and modern system of its class, and to be doing this in cooperation with our Korean friends. We are resolutely moving forward towards becoming the world’s leading company in the field of Damage Control Simulators. Our greatest references in this regard are, without any doubt, the Naval Forces of Turkey and Oman. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Turkish Naval Forces, which enabled us to come up our first product; the Undersecretariat for Defence Industries, which gave us great support in this export we performed to the Republic of Korea; the Royal Navy of Oman, which allowed our product to prove itself at an international level and the International Sales and Platform Simulator teams of our company, which put a huge amount of effort into making this export happen.”
