Virtual panels for simulator control rooms

Give your plant personnel a fast, flexible and easy to use simulator interface at low costs - Fortum Virtual Panels for nuclear power plants.
Fortum Virtual Panels are interactive touch screens to simulate your hard-wired Human Machine Interface (HMI). Virtual Panels can freely be configured to match any control panels at your plant. They are easily connected to Apros® (to Apros pages) or other process simulation platforms.

Significant cost savings, compared to traditional panels

With Fortum Virtual Panels, you have no need for dozens or hundreds of expensive mechanical components in your simulator HMI.
