Digital Twin and Familiarization for Teekay
Kanda has developed a digital twin of a complete Aframax tanker for Teekay. A digital simulation for training the crew in LOTO procedures and providing them with an onboarding experience of the vessel before they even get onboard.
The benefits of a digital environment
The advantage with the digital twin, Kanda has developed of Teekays Aframax tanker, the Limirick Spirit, is the minimal time seafarers need for ship familiarization.
The seafarers just put on a VR headset, and after boarding the ship, they will be able to teleport around the whole vessel. They can easily carry out the LOTO procedures and interact with different LOTO equipment. In the end of the training, statistics and analysis will be displayed and sent to Microsoft Power BI.
Teekay are able to start the VR simulation from anywhere, without worrying about external hardware such as a computers, positional trackers or physical simulators.
