Transas Awarded An Order For OOCL Container Ship Model

Thursday, March 15, 2001
According to the order received from the global container transportation company, Orient Overseas Container Line (OOCL), Transas Marine will create a mathematical and visual model of the company's 75,000-ton container ship. OOCL will use the container ship model at its simulator training facilities in Zhoushan, China, where a Navi-Trainer Professional simulator from Transas was installed in early 2000. Transas will design the simulated model in full accordance with real characteristics of OOCL's vessels. This will give the container company's navigators the excellent opportunity to try the maneuverability of their ships and improve their navigating skills prior to embarking upon an actual voyage.

Transas will develop the simulated prototype of the OOCL's container ship based on the exhaustive data obtained from the customer and ensure that the fully realistic behavior of the vessel is achieved in the simulation environment. Upon the completion of the development process, this container ship model will be added to the extensive database used with the Transas Navi-Trainer series of ship handling simulators.
