The purpose of that container, worth HRK 3.3 million (€440,000) without Value Added Tax, is to enable participants in exercises that take place in such containers to experience various sorts of tremors.
The interior of the container is furnished with movable objects which can be found in an ordinary living room, and sound effects typical for earthquakes will also be simulated during exercises.
The objects in the container are non-breakable so that participants in earthquake simulation exercises cannot be injured.
The procurement of the earthquake simulation room is part of the ministry’s project aimed at efforts to reduce the risks of natural disasters, the daily newspaper reported.
