Avangrid Renewables is a wind energy multi-conglomerate providing cutting edge renewable energy services and delivery. Avandgrid currently services over 3 million customers throughout the United States.
Avangrid Renewables was looking to streamline and innovate their maintenance crew training scenarios in order to be more efficient and improve onboarding and time to value for learning. They looked to use VR as a means to deliver a safe and controlled virtual environment whereby maintenance crews could standardize their learning efficacies and improve processes.
VR Vision looked to develop an entire maintenance operation using the Oculus Quest in order to facilitate mock training exercises for the maintenance technicians.
Technology & Services
VR Vision provided a set of 10+ Oculus Quest’s to be set up in their training dojo for an immersive learning experience for maintenance technicians. We provided hardware support and maintenance as well as updates to their Portland facilities. The training modules were loaded into Oculus kiosk mode with a user login that tracked results and pushed the data back to their internal LMS.
The final training modules provided various unique processes for onboarding maintenance crews for standard lockout/tagout procedures on wind turbines. This enables Avangrid to onboard maintenance technicians much faster and have them operate with fewer mistakes in the field. Currently, this is an ongoing project where additional training modules are being added to increase the breadth and scale of the training programs.
