KNUD E. HANSEN develops virtual reality tool for ship designers

Knud E Hansen is to showcase ShipSpace, a new virtual reality (VR) tool for ship designers, at SMM Hamburg 2016 this September.

ShipSpace uses the latest VR technologies to enable users to walk around all areas of the vessel and get a better understanding of how spaces work. It adds depth and scale that is not possible with monitors or projectors.

“ShipSpace is a cutting-edge tool that our engineers and partners can use to design better ships, faster,” said Finn Wollesen Petersen, Knud E Hansen’s managing director. “Knud E Hansen has been an innovator in ship design since 1937 and ShipSpace is another step forward for us.”

The company’s head of simulation products Robert Spencer added: “ShipSpace has proven to be an excellent tool for communicating and developing designs and ideas, by enabling stakeholders to walk around the vessel while it is still on the drawing board.”
