Our Port Creation Process
Day 1 Consultancy
The initial stage of the process begins with a consultation meeting with our 3D Environment Artist team to clarify the specification you desire for your virtual port
Week 1 Area Mapping
Working with you to decide which areas of your chosen port need the highest level of detail and which key landmarks need to be generated into 3D
Weeks 1-2 Gathering Reference
This can be in the form of on-site photography gathering intelligence from the internet, digital mapping software and ENC charts.
Weeks 2-6 Creating 3D Models
Once all necessary references have been gathered we can begin creating 3D geometry and populating the high detailed areas
Week 6 Client
Testing Project updates can be supplied on request anytime throughout the process and on week 6 your port will be available for testing to ensure all your requirement have been met
Week 7 Delivery
Once you are happy with your 3D port you can use it anytime at our facility for training, or additionally in your very own custom built simulator including bespoke equipment.
Please note – time scales are based on averages and may vary due to size of port you require.
We have the ability to create any vessel for your simulation training. Our team of 3D experts bring blueprints to life using the latest modelling and image manipulation software.
These models are then thoroughly tested repeatedly to match the real life counterpart ensuring realism when used in simulated environments
Our Vessel Creation Process
Our team receive the necessary information from the client and work on building up reference portfolios for each vessel.
When enough information has been attained work begins on modelling the vessel.
Once the modelling stage is complete it’s then onto texturing, the vessels liveries are painted to the client’s specification.
Next the models handling characteristics and physical properties are added and tested for accuracy.
After the client is happy with the vessel it is integrated into the simulator and ready for training exercises.

- World’s First Hydrogen-Powered Cruise Ship ScheduledOctober 17, 2017 - 9:34 am
Viking Cruises has joined the ranks of shipping companies working to introduce fuel cell technology with the announcement last week of plans to build the world’s first cruise ship fueled by liquid hydrogen. Project manager Serge Fossati told a shipping conference in Norway that the ship will be around 230 meters long and will accommodate […]
- New Mooring Technology Operational for TankersOctober 17, 2017 - 9:33 am
Cavotec’s EX-certified MoorMaster automated mooring units have supported the first ever transfer of LNG from a ship to a floating LNG platform. MoorMaster is a vacuum-based automated mooring technology that eliminates the need for conventional mooring lines. Remote-controlled vacuum pads recessed in, or mounted on the quayside or pontoons, moor and release vessels within 30 […]
- Hyper Realistic Graphics For Maritime Simulation Currently Under DevelopmentOctober 17, 2017 - 9:24 am
A UK-based company is currently working on a new project to “totally revolutionise the maritime simulation environment”. Many new technological advances will combine to create this new project. Currently titled simply “LCS” (which stands for “Live Constructive Simulation”) one of the key areas of the development will be new “real life graphics” which will “enhance […]
- Virtual People Integrated in Simulation SoftwareOctober 10, 2017 - 10:59 am
Maritime Bridge simulator software has now been integrated with virtual AR people to increase training realism. The addition of artificial reality has been a long time coming as the industry seeks new ways to enhance the simulated training environment. With the forthcoming photo-realistic graphics from developers, as well as integrated live AIS data, the addition […]
