Vassbakk & Stol and Novorender: Crafting the Future of Undersea Tunnels with Cutting-Edge 3D Technology


The Challenge:

Vassbakk & Stol, a beacon of infrastructure excellence in Kopervik, Norway, undertook their most ambitious project yet – the Rogaland fixed link. Touted to be the world’s largest undersea tunnel, the Rogfast fixed link would span a remarkable 27 km, diving to an unprecedented depth of 392 meters below sea level. The aim was to seamlessly connect key Norwegian cities like Kristiansand, Stavanger, Haugesund, and Bergen. However, with great ambition comes great responsibility. To ensure the project’s success, Vassbakk & Stol recognized the importance of ensuring complete transparency and efficiency in managing the myriad aspects of this enormous undertaking.

The Solution

Novorender, a state-of-the-art 3D-viewer, was selected as their visualization partner for the Rogfast fixed link project.

1. Bringing Stakeholders Together with Transparent Insights: Novorender’s capabilities ensured that every stakeholder, from engineers to planners, had real-time access to the project’s details. By amalgamating 2D/3D models, Ortophoto, and point cloud data, Novorender granted stakeholders the ability to share crucial project information across any device seamlessly. This transparent approach ensures everyone remains on the same page, fostering an environment of collaboration and mutual understanding.

2. The Power of Integration – DITIO & Novorender: To further bolster the project’s management capabilities, Novorender was integrated with DITIO. This synergy allowed Vassbakk & Stol and their partners, Skanska, to gain a comprehensive view of every project lifecycle phase directly within the 3D model. From images and comments to issues and updates, everything was available at their fingertips, offering a 360-degree view of the project’s progress.

With Novorender’s innovative 3D visualization tools, Vassbakk & Stol are poised to make the Rogfast fixed link not just a marvel of engineering but also a testament to the power of technology in transforming the world of infrastructure. The tunnel’s anticipated opening in 2031 is set to revolutionize undersea transportation, all while showcasing the prowess of modern-day infrastructure technology.
