PaleBlue has run a Kick-Off workshop for the collaborating companies in the Dive Control Simulator project. Three companies have attended: PaleBlue from Stavanger in Norway, Norwegian School of Commercial Diving NYD from Oslo, and Industrial Systems and Control from Glasgow, Scotland.

Dive Control Simulator development is co-funded by EU within Eurostars program, part of Horizon 2020 framework program. The three mentioned companies constitute the development consortium for the project.
Thanks to the workshop, technical and organizational activities are planned for the year. This brings us one step closer to making a comprehensive simulator-based training system for diving supervisors.
We will share more updates as this development continues.
