To solve this problem we have developed a VR-simulation in which employees can control a Safeway gangway as if they were on the ship itself. In the simulation, they have a view of a virtual cabin and have full control over the gangway systems through two joysticks.
Various scenarios can be simulated in the simulation, for example, a power outage, or the outbreak of a fire. Using these scenarios, employees can master the operating system and tackle almost any emergency situation. In the simulations, it is also possible to try and safely transport people and containers to a wind turbine or an oil platform.
A virtual reality simulation that only requires a laptop, a VR headset and two joysticks. This means the simulation is not location-specific and can be used anywhere, anytime. Every employee worldwide can gain expertise about the operation systems, resulting in reduced (travel)costs, more training time and ensures fewer staff are needed.
