Virtual Reality Technology Goes Nuclear!

Virtual Reality Technology Goes Nuclear!

TR has pulled off what we believe is a first on the Sellafield site by manipulating technical engineering 3D models of the First Generation Magnox Fuel Pond and utilising game engine technology producing a virtual 3D immersive environment of the plant. Using the latest Oculus Rift VR Headset plant operators can familiarise themselves with the facility prior to undertaking tasks in the actual cell area. Radiation levels mean time is restricted to 20-30 minutes a day to work in the cell so every second counts and the VR module provides a safe and highly accurate tool to build an understanding of the environment.

Congratulations also to the FGMSP pre-operations team for their success in the Business Excellence Awards where the VR module and control desk simulator, also developed by TR, were exhibited to the judges.
