Cadpeople: Digital simulator brings real-life to the classroom

Together with MHI Vestas Offshore Wind (today Vestas), Cadpeople created an award-winning, mobile, versatile, and cost-effective digital training simulator for wind turbine technicians to train and optimise their skills. By bringing a virtual real-life wind turbine into a classroom environment, technicians can train in a non-consequential environment.

Digital simulator brings real-life to the classroom

The Advanced Training Simulator was designed to create a more flexible training set-up and to maintain a high level of competence in all aspects of the production, transport, and assembly of wind turbines – while at the same time defending MHI Vestas Offshore Wind’s (today Vestas) position as the digital pioneer in the wind industry.

The simulator can be set up in any classroom, allowing theoretical and practical training to take place in one learning environment, which makes the training much more coherent, understandable, and real-life like. This digital solution can simulate any defect a technician might encounter in the field.

Advanced Training Simulator results:

  • Significantly lowers construction cost (up to one third of a traditional simulator)
  • Is easy and relatively inexpensive to replicate and update
  • Reduces training costs
  • Reduces travel costs and thereby environmental footprints
  • Improves ability to present realistic scenarios in classes
  • Gives more hands-on experience achieved in training
  • Provides a much safer training environment
  • Improves mobility as it can be mounted in any classroom, making training more coherent
