Due to the major increase of shipping traffic on the South China Sea, there was a need to refurnish and upgrade Hong Kong Vessel Traffic Services System (HKVTSS). From here, the Hong Kong Department coordinates all shipping traffic on the territorial waters.
After visiting several coordination centres , Brand Control Rooms was selected. The projects challenge was to get all specific wishes and requirements to fit in with the design of the 12 consoles. Our consultant analysed all bottlenecks in a desk analysis. The proof of concept was tested on location in Hong Kong on the basis of a mock-up. Features of the compact and transparent console design include an electric foldaway monitor unit that Brand Control Rooms designed specially and a transparent electric adjustable filter screen that weakens annoying reflection of sunlight on the water.
