VR model for Vyncke Biomass installation

Supportsquare is happy to announce its collaboration with Vyncke, supported by Flanders’ Factory-of-the-Future initiative (POM West Vlaanderen).

VYNCKE designs and builds green and clean energy plants burning biomass and  Solid Recovered Fuel (SRF) to produce energy.
This 2016 “Enterprise of the Year” is facing fast global expansion of their business.
Most of their biomass facilities are constructed abroad.

To optimize their sales, marketing, engineering and ramp-up processes there is a need to work with virtual versions of their installations.
In this co-creation project Supportsquare enhances its collaborative VR for the specific needs of large installations such as Vyncke Biomass facilities. Our VR environment enables collaborative visits, design reviews, and training sessions of  Vyncke’s  installations from all over the world. These remote sessions provide an immersive and interactive experience to the visitor.
The collaborative solutions help Vyncke to optimize the information exchange during the engineering and ramp-up phase, and they tighten both the pre- and aftersales relationship with their customers
