Global MaritimeFibre Optic Cable Installation ANIMATION
Salt Technologies (Salt) was approached by Global Maritime to develop an animation for a fibre optic subsea cable (FOC) installation. Global Maritime had been contracted by Equinor, Norwegian energy company, to install a new fiber optic subsea cable with an extension of 40km under the Norwegian sea.
Very close to the installation date, Global Maritime concluded that would be hugely beneficial to train their team and to demonstrate their client how the installation process would be carried out.
Therefore, Salt was challenged to develop a 4 to 5 minutes technical animation illustrating every step of the cable installation process.
FROM THE HAND DRAWING STORYBOARD
TO THE FINAL ANIMATION
In the end, we delivered the project on time and on budget. And by focusing on clean communication (visual engineering) we managed to deliver a very informative piece of communication at a very competitive budget.
The outcome was that on the set date Global Maritime was able to brief the entire crew of the vessel and onshore using our animation, which was praised for its clarity of communication and accuracy of details not only by Global Maritime but inclusively by Equinor itself.
“Thanks very much for the animation! I am impressed by the detail level given the short time frame! I think this will be very useful for involved personnel.”
“Just showed this to the client – and they are really impressed!!”
Rolf Åge, Project Manager, Global Maritime
“Muito bom! I’m really impressed by the animation.”
