Maritime simulator voice-over

The world’s largest maritime simulator

voice-over narration

My client Marin (Maritime Research Institute Netherlands) is building the world’s largest and most modern maritime simulator center. Very cool.

In September 2022 construction of MARIN’s Seven Oceans Simulator centre (SOSc) began, with a virtual push of a button. With this new research facility, MARIN aims to make maritime operations safer and more efficient through the most realistic simulation of the behavior of and the interaction between maritime structures, ships, the environment and humans. The SOSc will be operational at the beginning of 2024.

The research center will have spherical and moving simulators, a virtual / augmented reality experiment room and human factor measurement and observation techniques that can be used flexibly to simulate complex maritime operations. Arno Bons, manager Simulation & Visualization: ‘The spherical simulators with moving bridge will be unique worldwide because the environmental projection is not only all around, but also upwards and downwards. In the Maritime eXperience Lab we research the latest VR/AR systems and apply them to maritime systems and operations, both above and below water. We can also link all simulators to each other to simulate complex multi-ship and multi-tool operations.’

The SOSc provides an important boost to MARIN’s mission: clean, smart and safe shipping aa well as sustainable use of the sea. Bas Buchner, managing director MARIN: ‘In addition to research into shipping safety, this new virtual test facility makes it possible to experience the behavior of future ships during the design phase, in which the role of the crew and cooperation on board are central. It gives the national and international maritime sector the opportunity to develop innovative ships with safe and maximum operational deployment under the most difficult sea conditions.’
