Ampelmann’s VR Experience brings complex technology to your fingertips

November 01, 2018

Ampelmann has embraced the benefits of the technology and has been developing its very own VR Experience to make operator trainings more detailed and interactive.

Training staff to work with complex technology (and we’re talking motion-compensating-gangway-systems complex) is often a challenging task. Picture the following: A new operator needs training to work on an Ampelmann A-type. Part of that training is getting to know the ins and outs of the system, learning the safety and operational procedures, and preparing for all possible scenarios. Part of it is thus sure to take place offshore. 

Yet, going offshore is not the only way to provide operators with the right environment for their training. Virtual reality (VR) can be a powerful tool, too. It opens doors to a variety of training scenarios, test runs and opportunities to learn by doing.  

Ampelmann has embraced the benefits of the technology and has been developing its very own VR Experience to make operator trainings more detailed and interactive. Just about a week ago, Ampelmann showcased its technology and welcomed people who wanted to try it out and immerse themselves in it. 

You want to know how that went? It’s all in the video below.
