What is a digital twin to you? And what does eSite have to do with it?

Digital twin means different things to people with different backgrounds. But, a common understanding, is that it replicates the characteristics of a physical, or existing object, in a digital form. This concept was called the digital twin by John Vickers of NASA in a 2010 Roadmap Report. Typically, a digital twin is not only a visual model, but it also has functional elements embedded to it. In some cases, it means that simulator data is connected to the visual […]

Reality capture for Safety critical industries

Using reality capture enables remote visits to hazardous areas (e.g. at Nuclear or Oil & Gas plants). It reduces the need for site visits, shorten outages, makes training more effective and ultimately improves safety (read more in the featured SPAR3D article). During decommissioning projects, all the planning can be done virtually. Fortum has used reality capture to enable virtual visits, this way reducing financial risks while improving safety to plant owners[...]

How eSite has enhanced Fortum’s operational excellence

Fortum has been one of the front-runner companies that uses innovative technologies and put them into practice to adapt effectively to current times. Since travelling to the physical locations is no longer an option, Fortum plants are digitizing their sites and using eSiteview to visit them remotely. Along the road, we have had many success stories, but we would like to start by sharing few of our most valuable use cases[...]
