Operator Training Simulator

Flight Simulator equivalent for Process Indsutry

The Simulator

Mobatec offers a real-life simulator training solution for panel and field operators in the process industry. A Mobatec simulator is a tailor-made design to be identical to the real plant. We are able to create advanced models that reflect the ‘real-life’ process reality and the time period needed to do that is short thanks to Mobatec Modeller advanced modelling platform and Mobatec Methodology.

Mobatec’s team of engineers will provide you with a High Fidelity Dynamic (or Steady-State) model of your plant which will be connected to a Distributed Control System of your choice along with an Annunciator Panel emulation.

The Field Operator Module

Our partner OTS (Operator Training Solutions) developed a tool to make it possible to train control room operators together with field operators. While training, Field operators perform the field operations in the field itself, however not on the real equipment, but via an ATEX approved smart device connected to the OTS.

The Field Operator Module of OTS.expert can be coupled to both to the Operator Training Simulator of OTS.expert as well as to the Operator Training Simulator of other brands.

Immersive Operator Training

Our partner Kairos3D developed Gilgamesh which is a software platform for immersive training simulations through virtual reality and real-time interactive 3D simulation.

It reproduces a realistic and interactive environment where plant elements react to user actions in a realistic way. Advanced elements like visual effects and item-specific sounds and noises help reproducing the actual environment, to ensure the user actions are as close as possible to the ones he would have on a real plant.
