Vinci VR, in partnership with Siemens Gamesa Renewable Energy (SGRE), was awarded funding from the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center to develop Virtual Reality (VR) training simulations for the offshore wind sector in Massachusetts and the East Coast, USA.
Vinci and SGRE received $124,670 in funding. The grant will be used to create the first Global Wind Organizations (GWO) certified VR training tools, starting with two courses (Basic Technical Training-Installation and Slinger Signaler). Building on this grant, Vinci and SGRE hope to later expand development of VR simulations to additional GWO modules. The VR integrations for the initial two courses will be developed, audited, and tested by July 2021.
