We developed a prototype OIl & Gas Emergency Response training simulation for Kiwi Resource Protection using Unity.
At VRG, we're committed to enhancing training methodologies with the power of virtual reality (VR). Our latest project transforms the way emergency response training is conducted at oil refineries. Traditional training methods in such high-stakes environments can be logistically challenging and potentially hazardous. With VR technology, we provide a safe, immersive, and cost-effective solution that transcends conventional boundaries.
Immersive Learning Experience:
VRG's VR simulations put trainees into realistic scenarios that replicate the complex conditions of an oil refinery during an emergency. This high level of immersion ensures that trainees can experience and interact with the environment in a lifelike manner, fostering deeper learning and retention of emergency protocols. The approach was to connect the trainee to the facilitator via radio link to further apply psychological pressure.
One of the paramount advantages of VR training is the ability to simulate dangerous situations without any real-world risk. Trainees can practice emergency responses to fires, chemical leaks, or equipment failures without the physical threats these events would pose in the real world.
VR simulations offer the benefit of scalability, allowing multiple trainees to undergo the same level of training simultaneously. The scenarios can be repeated as often as necessary, which is not always feasible in real-life drills due to cost and operational constraints.
Our VR training simulations are equipped with tracking and analytics, enabling trainers to assess individual and group performances with precision. This data-driven approach helps in identifying areas of improvement and customizing training to address specific needs.
