Flagship Simulators Displayed at Houston Open House Event
Drilling Systems hosted a fantastic event at their Houston base this spring. The open house served as a display of our flagship simulators, from our brand new On The Rig Simulator through to the advanced DrillSim5000 and DrillSim6000, in addition to demonstrations of our Virtual Reality and state-of-the-art training management software solutions.
The event welcomed visitors from co-hosts University of Wyoming including staff, students and alumni as well as clients and partners of Drilling Systems.
Visitors listened to two keynote speeches led by Dr Michael Pishko, Dean of the College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Wyoming, who talked about the university’s nimbleness, which has allowed it to understand the needs of business and investing in technology for a labour-based workforce.
Dr Pishko also outlined how UW’s new advanced learning building is based around the theme of collaboration with industry leaders such as Drilling Systems and others. This collaboration will strengthen the next generation curriculum informing drilling, engineering and transportation content as well as virtual reality and augmented reality in the future.
Ian Hudson, CEO of 3T Energy Group followed Dr Pishko with an enthusiastic talk about the journey through the solutions on offer. Ian stressed the importance of People; people talking about technology. The project with the University of Wyoming is about working with people graduating into a job with the skillsets industry is looking for – practical, hands-on, physical practice. The use of simulators Ian describes, is about working with technology, not replacing theory – understanding physics, understanding how to build a well.
