PEOPLE, PROJECTS and TECHNOLOGY 

People Factor Consultants – the Aberdeen-based safety training provider for the oil and gas industry – has launched a portable version of its high fidelity power distribution simulator to take electrical safety training abroad.

Technical director, Brian Crichton, explained: “This new, portable version resembling our main simulator based in Aberdeen, includes a custom designed portable generator control panel and touch screen technology.

“Whilst a previous software-based version existed, this new technology offers the user a hands-on experience when controlling the generation system on the simulator, and provides a far more realistic interaction whilst replicating the way in which electrical systems are controlled on modern installations.

“At a time when the industry’s focus is shifting from the North Sea, it is vital that we can deliver the best possible electrical safety training anywhere in the world – the advanced portable simulator has already been utilised for several projects in West Africa”.
