In Collaboration between Energy Innovation, Fagskolen Rogaland and NagellD we are happy to invite for a free accessible webinar addressing the use of VR and Digital Twins for training and simulations for Offshore Wind.
Date: 12th December 2023
Time: 14.00 – 15.00 Central European Time
Delivered by the T-shore Centre of Vocational Excellence for Offshore Wind Norway.
The use of virtual reality (VR) and digital twins in the offshore wind industry is gaining momentum, offering significant potential for training, simulations, and operational efficiency. The upcoming webinar, “Use of VR and Digital Twins for training in Offshore Wind,” to be held on December 12, 2023, will address the application of these technologies in the industry. This webinar, delivered by the T-shore Centre of Vocational Excellence for Offshore Wind Norway, promises to provide valuable insights into the use of VR and digital twins for training and simulations in offshore wind.
Digital twin technology involves creating virtual models that accurately reflect physical objects, such as wind turbines, in real-time. These virtual representations offer numerous advantages, including remote operation and control, predictive maintenance, enhanced safety, and reduced operational costs. They also facilitate scenario-based simulations that help optimize layout design, turbine placement, and operational strategies for offshore wind farms. The potential of digital twin technology in the offshore wind industry has been recognized by experts, with its ability to revolutionize the management, operation, and maintenance of wind farms. Dr. Ampea Karikari Boateng, Principal Research and Development Engineer at ORE Catapult, has highlighted the advantages of this technology for the maintenance, operation, and management of offshore wind farms, emphasizing its role in driving the growth of offshore wind towards a cleaner, green future.
Furthermore, the application of digital twin solutions from companies like Bentley Systems aims to deliver efficiency gains, reduce the levelized cost of electricity, and provide safer, less risky execution of offshore wind projects across the project life cycle from design to construction, operations, and maintenance.
In conclusion, the integration of VR and digital twins in the offshore wind industry represents a significant step towards enhancing operational efficiency, safety, and cost-effectiveness. The upcoming webinar promises to shed light on the practical applications and benefits of these technologies, further contributing to the advancement of the offshore wind sector.
