The $13.7 million connection between two state highways in northern Estonia
provides a safe and congestion-free alternative to existing local roads that
were routinely obstructed by traffic. Destia Eesti designed the two viaducts
using MicroStation and InRoads to visualize alternatives and accelerate the
The InRoads roundabout tool was especially useful for dynamically creating
the roundabout intersections, checking vehicle path clearances, and making
adjustments. The grade-separated connector route served to improve the
quality of life for the community of Rakvere by reducing the traffic load on local
roads and providing a noise barrier at the highway junctions.
Dockwise Shipping B.V.
Float-Over for Vyborg Project
Float-Over Site, South Korea
After nearly two years of engineering, procurement, and project preparations,
Dock wise Shipping has completed the first of two float-overs for the Vyborg
Project in South Korea. The $100 million project involved moving two 15,000
metric ton semisubmersible hulls and two topsides that each weighed
approximately 19,000 metric tons and were constructed in locations more than
27,000 kilometers apart.
The company created images using MicroStation and the Luxology rendering
engine. By modeling all the elements of this project in 3D and making them
visible in an easy-to-understand format, issues with clearances, contact, and
clashes could be detected and resolved proactively. The completely assembled
semisubmersible, now weighing 34,000 metric tons, is ready for deployment at
its operating location.
