Vessel simulation: Safety is paramount02-05-21
Safety is paramount during construction of the tunnel in the Fehmarnbelt. Together with FORCE in Lyngby, Femern A/S conducted comprehensive simulations of vessel traffic and tested the co-operation with the VTS operators who monitor the traffic in the Fehmarnbelt.
Every year, 40,000 ships sail through the Fehmarnbelt. Thus, safety is paramount during construction and a priority area for Femern A/S.
FORCE's experts helped test safety at sea using realistic computer simulations of nautical conditions for shipping traffic.
The tests were taking place in a virtual environment with replicas of real ship bridges, radio communication with the VTS operators and simulated ship traffic outside the windows.
