VisTechnologies has developed an advanced oil spill simulation for Kongsberg Maritime. The project has been delivered according to the requirements of the client and within budget. The module will be used as a part of Polaris Ships Bridge Simulator to train personnel responsible for managing crisis situations.

The development included oil spill spreading, evaporation, dispersion, emulsification and response operations using ships equipped with sweeping arms, oil booms and skimmers. The entire simulation was implemented by using parallel computing, and executed in the graphics processing unit (GPU), which allowed us to greatly improve the performance and the size of the simulation area.
