This simulator provides a cutting-edge training experience for employees in the distribution industry, emphasizing changeable environments, interactive tasks, and self-evaluation for effective learning. Within this simulation, electricians are tasked with maintaining a malfunctioning element within a facility, specifically cleaning the generator and replacing parts. Only after completing the task can they evaluate their work and explore alternative methods for success.

The project was spearheaded by their company to showcase the potential of immersive training through the latest HTC VR technologies. After thorough research into the conditions and challenges faced by electricians, the training was refined to a higher standard, focusing on safety, realism, and instructional value within the VR environment.

Primarily used for electrician training, the simulator offers a visual representation of the electrician profession and related roles within the electricity distribution networks industry. Implementing virtual reality and 3D solutions into existing workflows aims to enhance safety, knowledge retention, and cost-effectiveness. The company's focus during the creation of the training simulator for electricity distribution networks centered on these aspects.


Extensive research was conducted by their R&D team, analyzing accidents and hazardous situations occurring in the industry globally over the past decade. Consultations with industry experts in Europe and Asia, along with data collection from educational institutions, media centers, and research laboratories, informed their approach.

Collaboration with human performance specialists allowed for the identification of key elements from case studies, which were then translated into modern solutions. This led to the digital transformation of the industry's communication and work organization infrastructure, with the development of VR training simulators for electricity workers being a pivotal product aimed at addressing core issues and delivering superior results for companies.
