News ERMA FIRST S.A. Presents a New Way to Experience a BWT Installation

ERMA FIRST welcomes its guests at SMM 2016, Stand No. 315, Hall A1, taking place at Hamburg Messe und Congress GmbH, engaging a cutting edge, in terms of high fidelity, Virtual Reality (VR) experience.

The public reception to the stand of ERMA FIRST has been overwhelming, exceeding its expectations. ERMA FIRST has breathed new life into the technological experience at the exhibition.

In addition to the steady flow of stand visitors, people are also flocking to experience, explore and educate themselves on the Ballast Water Treatment installation, which is featured on the VR.

ERMA FIRST manages to put the audience at the heart of the action by transporting them instantly to a real engine room, where they can see the world through its eyes, by coming into contact with the actual installation of the ERMA FIRST BWTS FIT 1500 m3/h on board a ship.

Based on 81,000 DWT Bulk Carrier and its operation, two ERMA FIRST BWTS FIT 1500 m3/h are selected and installed on the discharge side of the ballast pumps. Through a virtual work around the engine room, the guests are able to have an inside look at how the system and its components are placed using the existing pipes, whilst maintaining an exceptionally low footprint.

By means of this immersive, impactful and memorable VR experience, ERMA FIRST strives to be new and fresh and aims to engage the senses of the viewers and make them more familiar with the BWTS FIT, share its experiences and discuss the future application of its technology.
