Volvo/Oryx Plant Simulators

Civil Train SA has invested in the latest Volvo simulators imported directly from Sweden. The simulators, the first of their type in Australia, form the future of Plant Operations and Training and are considered to be the best in the world for the Civil Industry.

The current siumulators feature electrically controlled motion platforms that add to the realism of the Simulator experience. Developed in conjunction between Civil Train SA, Volvo Sweden and Civil RTO's in France and Canada, the exercises are focused on "muscle memory" and safe operating procedures.In order to raise the experience even further, the Volvo excavator simulator is built on Volvo original components.

Sitting in a real operator seat, using the controls from a real EC210C is important for the authentic feeling as well as the result of the training.A feature of the excavator simulator is the motion platform and the capabilities to recreate reality. A machine operator uses most of the senses in his daily work. The “feeling” is crucial for the job, especially as a warning signal for dangerous situations.

So why skip one of the important senses in training, when you can recreate the “feeling”?The advanced 3D-graphics is visualized in high definition on a large crystal clear LED-screen, making the training even more immersive. The screen is also very bright, meaning that it is not that sensitive to day-light and is very space-saving comparing to a projector and screen.

"I’m also very pleased to be here today at Civil Train, a great training establishment here in South Australia and it’s actually leading Australia in training in the civil construction sector," Prime Minister Gillard said.
