3D perception Upgrades Heerema Marine Contractors’ Crane Simulators with Cutting-Edge Visual Display Technology

Hvalstad, Norway 23 Jan 2024 – 3D perception AS (“3DP”) has successfully completed the upgrade of the Visual Display System (VDS) for two marine crane simulators at Heerema’s Simulation Center. The project, aimed at enhancing realism and performance, involved the integration of the latest laser projection technology and 3DP’s proprietary precision auto alignment system, StarScan™.

The Heerema Simulation Center, a state-of-the-art onshore facility, replicates real-time offshore environments, allowing for the seamless integration of proposed project activities into a realistic 3D world of operations. The upgrade was necessitated by the diminishing visual display quality of the existing simulators, which were equipped with 14 lamp-based projectors approaching the end of their service life.

The scope of the upgrade included the replacement of outdated technology with the latest laser projection technology, resulting in a reduction of the number of projectors from 14 to 10, and the incorporation of 3DP’s StarScan™ for precise auto alignment. This comprehensive upgrade significantly improved image fidelity, brightness, and sharpness, while ensuring ease of maintenance and long-term performance.

Remy Moerland, ICT Engineer at Heerema Marine Contractors, expressed satisfaction with the project, highlighting the professionalism, efficiency, and expertise demonstrated by the 3DP team. “Throughout the entire project communication was fluent and fast. The team was very professional and got the job done quickly and efficiently, and both on-site and off-site teams showed exceptional expertise. We are really pleased with the outcome,” he concludes.
