ExxonMobil Research Qatar (EMRQ) today announced that ExxonMobil has awarded a global commercial license for Immersive 3D Operator Training Simulator technology to co-developer EON Reality Inc.
A full-scale simulator of an actual gas processing facility in Qatar has been operational since 2013, providing realistic training on more than 300 interactive control devices in six gas processing units.
«The Immersive 3D Operator Training Simulator will change how operators and plant crews train on existing facilities and even before a facility is operational,» said Mats W. Johansson, CEO of EON Reality. «Working with ExxonMobil, we have created an immersive training tool to ensure that entire plant operation teams have practiced actual procedures together on a virtual facsimile of their plant. This truly is a flight simulator for plant operations.»
