The project Virtual port logistics safety park aims to develop a virtual training and simulation environment for port logistics scenarios used in safety training. The virtual environment creates a multifunctional platform to test, train and simulate various situations concerning port and logistics operations in different situations. The project initiates the development of occupational safety park that will be in Kotka, Kantasatama.

In addition, the project will create an operational concept and management model for the operation of the physical safety park located in Kantasatama. Project activities will proceed in cooperation with the applicant, the City of Kotka, the region’s port-related companies and organizations, voluntary civil protection organizations and authorities.
