Mayor visits the Centre for Marine Simulation at Memorial University’s Marine Institute

The Centre for Marine Simulation (CMS) is an industrial arm of the Fisheries and Marine Institute of Memorial University. CMS combines its unique North Atlantic location, world-class simulation technology, and industry-driven expertise to solve the toughest simulation problems for it’s clients.

Located in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador, a city with one of the most sophisticated and comprehensive concentrations of ocean technology organizations anywhere in Canada, CMS is a significant contributor to the province’s rapidly expanding blue economy.

In this video interview with Captain Chris Hearn of the Marine Institute, Mayor Danny Breen learns more about this world-class facility, while highlighting some of the many advantages to living, working, studying and investing in our city.

“This Centre is very entrepreneurial and outward looking. We often compete for work both domestically and internationally. We’ve done work in the Russian Arctic and as far away as Vietnam. We’ve done work in the Caribbean and South America.” –Captain Chris Hearn, Marine Institute

“Our harsh climate has become one of our advantages. If you can make it work here, you can make it work anywhere.” –Captain Chris Hearn, Marine Institute
