Safety through simulation

19 February, 2019

“Instead, using a simulator means we can expose personnel to a variety of situations they wouldn’t otherwise experience until faced with a real-life catastrophe. Using specialist equipment from partners such as Bosch Rexroth means we can ensure each scenario is simulated as accurately as possible, as well as leaning on their experience to make the simulator as immersive as possible, while remaining safe and reliable.”

The use of Bosch Rexroth’s equipment on the moving platform means that the equipment can be relied upon for years to come – something which was vital given the Training Centre’s previous training equipment, which was also provided by Pisys, and used for 30 years. Take the EMC HD for instance: this robust electromechanical cylinder has been developed for efficient use even under harsh conditions, providing precise positioning, high dynamics and powerful drive within a rugged design, making it a perfect match for this application. The use of our other equipment, such as drives and firmware, also meant we could design the most suitable motion system for the training equipment which will put students through their paces in a variety of emergency situations.

Playing a key part in the design and build of the simulator also meant our specialist team could recommend and install the most effective equipment – not just in making the rig do all that’s required of it, but also to make it flexible enough to move to new locations when required. While the rig currently sits at the Training Centre in Aberdeen, it will be moved to a new location in around two years, making it accessible to even more students so safety can remain at the forefront of the oil & gas industry moving forwards.
