Energy Innovation Cluster
Virtual Reality Safety Training in partnership with Maersk and SIMAC.
As part of the Energy Innovation Cluster, this project brings together Maersk Training, Virtual Learning Lab, Virsabi and Simac. The aim of this partnership is to establish proof of concept, for bringing simulation-based training offshore to the crew at Maersk Training with use of Virtual Reality. Not only focusing on skills training but soft skills combined with operational daily realities and scenarios. Thus, the project investigates how Virtual Reality can enhance the training of Maersk Training crews on 7 vessels, in new work processes, with the ultimate goal of improving safety, energy efficiency, operational performance, and environmental impacts.
The project involves a fundamental shift, that will change how leaders manage, and how team members take on responsibility for their own tasks, but also for potential improvements in safety and energy performance. It is this shift we aim to support, by building a VR solution that will allow all members of crew to practice the required skills and behaviours in a simulated universe, where they can make mistakes and learn in a safe environment.
