TSK obtains the national Quality Innovation Award (QiA) for the third consecutive year. Although in 2018 it won the award in the category of potential innovation, both in 2019 and 2020, it did in the Large Company category. In this 2020 "SIXPERIENCE: virtual reality-based system for the operation and maintenance of industrial plants", developed by TSK’s Digital Innovation division, obtained the award.
The QiA awards are led by Laatukeskus Excellence Finland and coordinated in Spain by the Association of Centers for Excellence (CEX).
The award will be presented on December 4 in a virtual ceremony, with the presence of various authorities. TSK will now compete in the international finals with global organizations at the forefront of innovation.
It should be noted that, last February, within the framework of Genera 2020, the international Energy and Environment Fair, SIXPERIENCE was valued as one of the most innovative projects of the year in the energy industry in Spain.
SIXPERIENCE starts with the creation of a virtual environment of any kind and:
• Through a new immersive environment, similar to the real experience, the user can walk, interact with different elements and check their status (both in real time and past data). This is achieved thanks to the interaction with TSK’s monitoring tool, SISREM, that can display of all the information gathered in real time during the process, along with the whole group of indicators (KPIs) and the associated smart analytics
• You can check all the information generated during the design, execution and operation of the industrial plant. From the new virtual environment, you can access the different element’s data sheets, as well as drawings, design parameters and/or maintenance reports. All the existing information, along with what is generated during the plant’s lifecycle, can be reviewed and checked from this new virtual environment.
• Furthermore, SIXPERIENCE can also be integrated with the rest of systems existing at the plant, such as CCTV systems, CCMSs and/or ERPs. You can interact with them from the new virtual environment.
• Lastly, using SIXPERIENCE you can train staff on the plant’s operation by creating simulations. In the new virtual environment, operators can modify elements. The virtual environment will then simulate what the real behavior of the plant would be with the different actions performed, but it is a safe place for learning, accessible from any location.
