A Nettle crew goes photomapping at the construction site of the Novovoronezh nuclear power plant. NNPP-2 is the object of RosAtom, russian state corporation. The photo maps will be used to create a virtual holographic maquette of the site.

Usually the Nettle team uses engineering blueprints and colour scheme solutions to create virtual holographic maquettes. However, modelling industrial facilities, especially as enormous and as complex as a nuclear power plant, requires exhaustive data in order to be realistic and visually convincing. Photography is often a good source of additional information for this purpose.

During the photomapping session at the NNPP-2 construction site the Nettle crew visited the reactor building and the turbine hall where equipment assembly and installation is currently in full progress. The power plant is a new nuclear power station type known under the NPS-2006 designation. It uses the VVER-1,200 reactor rated at 1.2 GW. The first section of the power plant whose construction is underway will have an output of 2,400 MW. Future plans include the construction of two more units. Work on the NNPP-2 is expected to usher in serial production of nuclear power stations in Russia.

The spring has come and NettleBox has returned to Cannes again. HALS-Development JSC, an old client of ours and one of Russia’s leading development companies, used Nettle’s holographic equipment to present its development sites.

MIPIM, the world’s largest and prestigious property exhibition venue, traditionally brings together the most influential players and trend setters in the area of presentational solutions.

This year’s event featured seven virtual mock-ups presented on NettleBox. Compared to last year, NettleBox presentations at MIPIM-2014 made use of several new capabilities of the equipment, such as exploration of building interiors, interaction with mock-ups via a tablet, and displaying the view through the user’s glasses on an auxiliary screen.

Just as last year, this year’s virtual holographic mock-ups received considerable attention from the world’s construction, project development, and marketing elite. They attracted numerous visitors who wanted to have a look at the latest trends in the area of architectural presentations.
