Transas Marine International (now Wärtsilä) in Gothenburg approached us, to design an advanced display solution upgrade for a Navigational simulator in Rørvik, Norway.
Transas Marine International wanted an upgrade of their main Navigational simulator for Sikkerhetssenteret in Rørvik, Norway. A new building of 940 sqm. was taking form where all of the existing 8 smaller simulators along with the new one would move in. The current main simulator was to be replaced by one from Transas. The main simulator will be used to train personnel of fishing vessels. The training is needed to allow for a more precise navigation closer to objects in the water like the fish harvesting cages.
We proposed a spherical screen so that the projection will be closer to the vessel’s side. Detailed renderings of the design were provided for the end user to illustrate the clear benefits of our solution.
The responsibility of project: syntropy was delivery and installation of the screen (4m height, 12.6m diameter), design and installation of the projection system as well as integration of the camera based auto-calibration.
