On November 20-21 2019, together with PROZAP, the engineering company of Grupa Azoty Puławy, we were participating in the conference “Chemistry 4.0 – technology in the industry” – organized by the Polish Chamber of the Chemical Industry (Projekt Chemia 4.0, Polska Izba Przemysłu Chemicznego – PIPC).
The subject of the conference sessions was industry 4.0 and related innovations which are no longer a trend of the distant future. For many companies, they are everyday activities and constitute one of the key elements of their strategic development. The chemical sector is one of the most intensively using modern solutions, however, it still faces numerous challenges related to their implementation.
During the conference, our CEO Sebastian Zielinski along with Bartosz Koletka of PROZAP was asked to give a lecture on innovation which involves use of virtual reality for training in industrial plants, including a few examples of actual applications made for companies like Grupa Lotos, Grupa Azoty, Agrochem and Haas.
As part of the keynote, we presented the possibilities of the Virtual Training Environment (VTE) system in supporting the traditional training and the possibility of using virtual training to prepare for emergency situations (VTE TEE). We pointed out that virtual reality training is safe and can greatly accelerate the learning process of employees to prepare them for work. Even for the industrial plants or equipment which are not actually constructed, but exist as a 3D model.
After the keynote participants were able to test our VTE software on our booth where we enjoyed great interest in our VR technology.
