The virtual reality simulator allows trainees to “see” equipment and to work on it in a safe environment. It allows trainees to experience the consequences of errors without any impact in the real world.

The Leningrad station is the first pilot site in Russia where the technique is being tested. Until now, personnel were trained “on the job”, which meant waiting for planned shutdowns. Russia is planning to use the virtual reality simulator to train up to 1,000 specialists a year.
