CASE 1

Oil&Gas Plant, Rosneft – RUSSIA

END COSTUMER: JSC RYAZAN REFINERY ROSNEFT

PROJECT GOALS: Creation of a 3D virtual immersive training simulation system (ITS) to train field operators on procedures of one specific refinery unit.

PROJECT ORGANIZATION AND STAGES

Illogic and Intelligent Ideas (our Russian office) acted as main contractors.

The project has been develop along 3 different stages, as shown below.

PERFORMANCES

Very high quality of images and production delivery time drastically reduced thanks to a customized effective pipeline process and technology.

 

GOALS REACHED

Increased safety in the plant
Reduced plant downtime and maximized the efficiency of plant maintenance
Provided a training system more efficient than the traditional one
Saved money thanks to efficiency and optimization of downtimes

CASE 2

IGCC PLANT – USA

END COSTUMER: Department Of Energy Of The United States (DOE) and the AVESTAR (Advanced Virtual Energy Simulation Training And Research Center)

PROJECT GOALS: Creating and deploying a 3-D virtual immersive training system (ITS) for integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) power plant with carbon capture

PROJECT ORGANIZATION AND STAGES

The 3-D virtual immersive training system project was part of a wider project led by the DOE Avestar Center.

Whole project objective was the Development of the Dynamic Simulator / Operator Training System (OTS) of the IGCC and the Development of the the 3-D virtual immersive training system (ITS) of the IGCC

NB  With technology available until 2012, VR-STAR setup   included 70 millions of polygons in the scene and 70 fps interactive frame rate, in stereo

2. MAIN MODULES AND FEATURES DELIVERED

   Team operation module, as the main module, to allows Trainees to train in teams.

   Instructor station, where events are driven by the Instructor who monitors how Trainees behave and react to simulated situations

   Environmental condition simulation, with a dedicated panel allowed to control:

  • Volumetric Weather Conditions
  • Dynamic Light Conditions
  • Dynamic Fluid and Gas Simulation

   Simulation of risky situations and incidents

“After action Review” allows review and follow-up on training sessions to reach higher efficacy levels. The project was provided of a dedicated UI widget with the controls necessary to record a training session. Recorded session can be played back to analyze multiple field operator’s performance for a specific scenario.

   Connection to 3rd party Chemical-Physical Simulator

   Immersivity and stereoscopy

   Augmented Reality allows Trainees to see augmented content and information on smart floating 3D layers related to the specific equipment they are working with.

GOALS REACHED

The DOE organizes courses for IGCC orientation directed to engineers and managers.
This course introduces trainees to the IGCC simulator, process, and controls. During the training, trainees startup and shutdown the simulated unit in an integrated manner and will be exposed to simple and complex unit malfunctions in the control room and in the field.
Trainees spend 40% of the time in the classroom and 60% of the time interacting with the operation and immersive training simulators.
