A sea of challenges and traditional training costs

PGS faced the colossal task of training its crew for the intricate work aboard seismic vessels — a process fraught with high costs, safety risks, and a significant environmental footprint. Traditional training methods, while effective, struggled to bridge the gap between theoretical knowledge and practical application without incurring substantial expenses or compromising on safety.


PGS’s leap into VR training

In an innovative collaboration with SynergyXR, PGS embarked on a digital transformation journey, utilizing VR to create a comprehensive digital twin of their Titan class vessel’s deck. This immersive platform enabled crew members to practice and perfect their skills in a risk-free environment, effectively bringing the high seas into the high-tech realm of VR.

Virtual Reality isn't just transforming how we train; it's redefining our approach to operational excellence and environmental responsibility.
