The only facility of its kind in an academic institution in the world, the pilot plant shows students how the latest technologies can help to optimise plant performance and safely manage emergency situations in real-life applications.
The control room, the heart of the plant, is sponsored by ABB and built around 800xA and the Extended Operator Workplace EOW-x2. The room has been ergonomically designed to minimize fatigue, reduce stress on the body, eliminate eye strain and optimize efficiency in students while training. During training exercises, students can take part in a range of scenarios including an emergency situation, where the room morphs: desks rise and screens move forward, so that students can practice their emergency response in line with industry recommendations for a crisis, which includes working from a standing position in a calm environment (see video below).
