The Maritime Museum Rotterdam presented its first Offshore Experience exhibition where visitors can go on a challenging search venture to experience what it is like at sea and 3km below the surface. More than fifty companies in the offshore and shipping sector and foundations took part in this project and contributed knowledge and items. VSTEP, in collaboration with RH Marine Netherlands BV, donated a DP Simulator, and the ocean of VSTEP’s upcoming NAUTIS version 3 simulator platform was used for the projection of the sea all around the exhibition space. On the oil platform replica, visitors can go on a challenging search for energy from oil, gas and wind. There are simulations that visitors can experience for themselves how drillers, crane drivers, wind turbine specialists and helicopter pilots manage their spectacular jobs on the open sea, in a constant battle with the elements.
