NAPCON Operator World Cup 2018 starts

Neste Corporation news 7 April 2018

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 started as first in the world an Operator World Cup in 2017, which was a game competition played with NAPCON Games Distiller and targeted to process operators and other process industry professionals. Now we are introducing a new competition called Operator World Cup Furnace 2018. This competition will be played with NAPCON's new Furnace operator training game, which teaches the player to operate an industrial furnace.

"Gamification is reaching the process industry training as well and Neste is a forerunner in its field to introduce training games into operator training. The NAPCON Games Furnace is an awaited addition to our training portfolio to complement the NAPCON learning path with traditional classroom training and training with NAPCON Simulator", says Tuomo Eskola, Product Manager, NAPCON Games.

The competition will be played more online this time and semi-finals will be played monthly between online players. The three best players of each month will receive 5 licenses to both the new NAPCON Games Furnace and Distiller. More information on the competition and finals can be found on
