Aveva Activity Visualisation Platform brings Industrial Gaming to the Plant Industries

ABERDEEN/SCOTLAND, September 4, 2013 - Aveva announced today the launch of its brand-new, Activity Visualisation Platform (AVEVA AVP). AVEVA AVP, built on Industrial Gaming technology enables efficient facility familiarisation, staff training, construction planning and simulation, operations and maintenance planning. It aids the rehearsal of safety and schedules critical activities, without putting either personnel or the plant itself at risk.

The platform supports customers to create immersive, interactive multi-user plant environments, AVEVA AVP generates its realistic simulations direct from 3D design models, even before the physical plant has been built. With operator error recognised as the leading cause of safety incidents, the company has created a solution that addresses this by revolutionising the way in which Owner Operators and engineering contractors (EPCs) can train staff. This powerful simulation solution will enhance plant operational safety while reducing costs and overall risk.

The oil & gas, power and process plant industries make extensive use of 3D models. Trainees can be immersed in a hands-on scenario and interact both with the model and with each other as avatars in a realistic virtual environment. They can quickly become familiar with ‘must know’ areas of the plant, such as access, maintenance locations and evacuation routes. They will even be able to answer practical questions such as ‘Can I drive a forklift around this area?’

Aveva will launch AVEVA AVP at Offshore Europe 2013, taking place at the Aberdeen Exhibition & Conference Centre, 3-6 September.
