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.

Virtual Panel

Significant cost savings, compared to traditional panels

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 or other process simulation platforms. 

With Fortum Virtual Panels, you have no need or dozens or hundreds of expensive mechanical components in your simulator HMI. We use carefully chosen stock touch screens and support structures in combination with our unique interface software. We have saved millions by using virtual panels on a full scope simulator in our own Loviisa NPP, Finland.
