March 25, 2015: AVEVA announced that TOTAL E&P NORGE has chosen AVEVA Activity Visualisation Platform to support training activities on its Martin Linge topside platform in the North Sea. Seeking an immersive training environment to facilitate advanced training for their HSE (Health, Safety and Environment) and other scenarios, TOTAL chose AVEVA after a competitive selection process.

’TOTAL required a captivating advanced training solution to provide an accurate and realistic environment to familiarise staff early, thoroughly and safely prior to deployment on-site in the North Sea’, said Derek Middlemas, COO and Head of Enterprise Solutions, AVEVA. ‘While the facility is still under construction, the ability to perform realistic training scenarios in a virtual environment is important for initial safety familiarisation activities. Later, such training methods provide a risk free environment to practice more complicated and hazardous training scenarios throughout the life of the platform. AVEVA AVP, part of AVEVA’s advanced Immersive Training offerings, reduces the need to go on-site, thus resulting in reduced costs and saving of time.’

AVEVA’s unique Digital Asset approach enables solution delivery teams to enhance the use of detailed design models for purposes other than traditional design and construction activities. AVEVA’s Immersive Training solutions provide a software platform allowing owner operators to tailor and repurpose design models for training, simulation and operational readiness activities. Virtual training environments created using AVEVA AVP can enhance traditional training effectiveness in a manner that reduces overall training costs.

Mr. Middlemas added, ‘TOTAL’s selection of AVEVA AVP for its Martin Linge Advanced Immersive Training solution is an important milestone in AVEVA strategy. AVEVA looks forward to working with TOTAL on this effort to maximise use of their AVEVA PDMS and AVEVA E3D models to further Owner Operator activities in training and simulation.’


For over 45 years, AVEVA software has enabled the creation of some of the world’s most complex power and process plants, vessels and offshore facilities. AVEVA’s Digital Asset approach ensures there is always an accurate digital representation of each physical asset. This allows engineering contractors, owner operators and ship builders to work safer, more efficiently and with less risk throughout the life cycle of their projects and operations.
