Siemens Energy launches VR solutions

August 2020

Siemens Energy is launching new virtual reality (VR)-based solutions in the Middle East, specifically tailored to power transmission firms, allowing them to remotely test, validate and train employees.

The new solutions will help clients ensure business continuity, at a time when the global Covid-19 pandemic resulted in travel restrictions and social distancing precautions. The utilisation of augmented reality (AR) and the VR technology in the power transmission sector will have a great impact on both time and cost, based on the different applications of this technology. For example, Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT) or Site Acceptance Tests (SAT), and trainings can be done remotely and in real-time.

“The energy companies are focusing on operational
efficiency, improved quality, increased production, high uptime, and ease of monitoring and controlling the
critical infrastructure. Grid operators are now embracing new digital solutions that will help them achieve those goals,” said Mahmoud Hanafy, senior vice president, Siemens Energy Transmission Solutions in the Middle East.
