Fairs and exhibitions
A new experience
For the very first time, ANDRITZ Hydro invited the audience on a virtual tour through a hydropower plant. The virtual reality (VR) equipment presented a “real” hydropower plant, but in a “virtual” environment. Able not only to support the proper arrangement of all electro-
mechanical components, the system is also able to give an impression of the sounds and the dimensions of a plant. Furthermore, the virtual tour can provide astounding views of a hydropower project, for example diving into the draft tube of a turbine or flying above the gates. Many visitors took the chance to experience this new feature.
