IRVINE, Calif., September 22, 2010 – EON Reality, the world’s leading interactive 3D software provider, today announced that SENAI of Rio de Janeiro will use EON Reality’s simulation solutions in training and development for the oil and gas industry. The National Service for Industrial Apprenticeship of Rio de Janeiro recently launched a brand new Center for Simulation Technology, SENAI-RJ (CTS), with the objective of conceptualizing its market position as a university of innovation, production and technology education. Aligned with other Technology Centers at FIRJAN, CTS Automation and Simulation Center, formerly known as Euvaldo Lodi, is considered the most modern throughout Latin America. With an investment of $3.5 million, the new unit will offer integrated simulation solutions to companies, especially within the oil and gas sector, aiming to reduce operational risks.

The 1,200 m2 facility will also provide high technology services and technical courses in Industrial Automation, Mechanical, Petroleum and Natural Gas Engineering.

In his speech using virtual holography, the president of FIRJAN, Eduardo Eugenio Gouvea Vieira, stressed the importance of the implementation of cutting edge technology as a response to the new challenges in the industry. “I am proud to see our SENAI enter the virtual era, train young professionals and assist the companies,” said Eduardo Eugenio. According to the president of the Center of Excellence EPC Petrobras, Laertes Galhardo, the initiative shows that the SENAI-RJ is attentive to the demands of the industry. “The oil and gas sector is taking a huge leap and we need to expedite the training process. The FIRJAN is responding to this demand by investing in market simulation,” said Mr. Eugenio.

According to the manager of the Technology Centre, Bruno Souza Gomes, the new simulators enable numerous applications. “One of them is the performance of maintenance procedures using augmented reality. These handheld devices interact with the equipment and design the step-by-step maintenance procedures for the operator,” he explained. Adding that for a refinery or oil platform it may, for example, include operational procedures of preventive or corrective maintenance, which before were printed and manually checked.

For businesses, the advantage is that the proposal will reduce costs and operational risks. For students, learning will be facilitated and sustained by the reality level of classes, which ensures more qualified decision making. Gomes explained that since many of these processes are delicate and difficult operations, doing this interaction in a traditional educational setting offers risks to students.

“With simulation technology, learners can virtually experience the immediate consequences of their technical decisions,” said Mr. Gomes.

Using integrated screen projection systems, previously known only in animation studios for film, dedicated servers, special glasses and joysticks; the new tools will give students the opportunity to experience what was not possible in traditional lessons or workshops; the total reality of the factories.

Other cases cited by Mr. Gomes are the large-scale immersive 3D simulations. “We can simulate, with 3D view, the potential impact of a spill and its environmental consequences.” He added that the gains from the simulations are immense. “We will have greater reliability, higher performance, lower total cost of maintenance and be able to minimize the time for training.”

I was really hoping if someone could recommend a trustworthy web site where I can purchase CBD Shop Database I am currently considering creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Unsure which one would be the most ideal solution and would appreciate any advice on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?
