Total adopts AVEVA AVP for Martin Linge topside platform in the North Sea

Total E&P Norge AS has chosen AVEVA Activity Visualisation Platform (AVP) to support training activities on its Martin Linge topside platform in the North Sea. Seeking an immersive training environment to facilitate advanced training for its HSE and other scenarios, the operator chose AVEVA after a competitive selection process.

 Advanced training solution

“Total required a captivating advanced training solution to provide an accurate and realistic environment to familiarise staff early, thoroughly and safely prior to deployment onsite in the North Sea”, said Derek Middlemas, COO and Head of Enterprise Solutions, AVEVA. “While the facility is still under construction, the ability to perform realistic training scenarios in a virtual environment is important for initial safety familiarisation activities. Later, such training methods provide a risk free environment to practice more complicated and hazardous training scenarios throughout the life of the platform. AVEVA AVP reduces the need to go onsite, thus resulting in reduced costs and saving of time.”

The unique digital asset approach enables solution delivery teams to enhance the use of detailed design models for purposes other than traditional design and construction activities. AVEVA’s Immersive Training solutions provide a software platform allowing owner operators to tailor and repurpose design models for training, simulation and operational readiness activities. Virtual training environments can enhance traditional training effectiveness in a manner that reduces overall training costs.
