Neste Corporation Press release 10 April 2018 at 10 am (EET)

NAPCON developed by Neste Engineering Solutions provides solutions for production and logistics optimization, data reporting and analysis as well as for operator training in the process industry.

NAPCON Games Furnace is a new addition to the license based NAPCON Games portfolio. The online played training game is targeted to operators and other industry professionals, who can enhance and test their skills in operating an industrial furnace anytime anywhere.  

NAPCON has changed operator training with their dynamic operator training simulators and launched an operator training game for the process industry last autumn as first in the world.

The gamified training tools of NAPCON Games can be combined with traditional operator training methods to maximize the training benefits and improve operator training.

"We have several customers, who are in the progress of introducing NAPCON Games to their operator training. We have received feedback that these training games are a great way to train, especially for the younger generation and to recruit new operators", says Mika Neffling, Sales Manager, NAPCON Games, Neste Engineering Solutions.

NAPCON Games Furnace training game has several carefully designed features. Learning with the game is interactive, engaging and fun making training very effective.

Sophisticated scoring systems and constant feedback enables the operators to track their progress and study their areas of improvement. Scoring systems give also the trainer a possibility to view areas of improvement and plan training accordingly. Modular architecture allows setting up an optimal training path with a series of tasks varying difficulty and scope. This enables operators of all levels to have challenging training sessions. 

"NAPCON Games Furnace offers a safe and meaningful way to train operators cost-effectively with realistic phenomena. This is the only game we encourage you to play at work", tells Tuomo Eskola, Product Manager, NAPCON Games, Neste Engineering Solutions.
