NETL’s AVESTAR team has completed successful deployment and site
acceptance testing of a first-of-a-kind 3D virtual immersive training
system for a commercial-scale integrated gasification combined cycle
(IGCC) power plant with carbon capture.  
When combined with AVESTAR’s state-of-the-art, real-time, high-fidelity
IGCC dynamic simulator and operator training system, the innovative
virtual reality technology provides engineers, operators, researchers,
and students with hands-on operations, control, and safety experience in
a highly realistic, integrated, IGCC plant and control room environment.
For more detailed information on the IGCC virtual plant simulator and
its use in workforce training, chemical engineering education, and
advanced R&D, please visit the AVESTAR web site at
