The aim of the Virtual Kantasatama project is to develop virtual models of the environment to be built in the port of Kotka and the platform itself.


The aim of the project is to develop virtual models of the environment to be built in Kantasatama harbour and the development platform itself. Further development of the virtual modeling platform (VirRake) in terms of functionalities, is done in cooperation with partner groups. The goal is to develop and pilot an easy-to-use application for the platform. The project works closely with the Smart Campus and Learning Construction (Oppiva Rakentaminen) projects to develop the VirRake platform.


  • Development of a multiplayer feature to enable scenarios
  • Simulation of masses in buildings and different scenarios (safety, etc.)
  • Increasing the usability of virtual modeling and developing functionalities for the virtual modeling platform
  • Opening up a commercial application development work in cooperation with partner groups (Satama Arena)


Virtual models serve to support the functional planning of future buildings for the development of the Kantasatama harbor.

The piloted commercial application will help the Event Center start planning, selling and marketing the center’s operations with the new application.
