DEWA adopts Microsoft HoloLens technologyby Utilities ME Staff on Jan 10, 2017
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) announced it has adopted Microsoft HoloLens, a mixed-reality technology that allows users to engage with digital content and holograms.
Microsoft HoloLens creates an end-to-end solution for DEWA energy plants with 3D representation of real data, offering a holographic and scenario-oriented view of the DEWA Smart Grid.
HoloLens can also be used in confined spaces such as combustion chambers, allowing continuous and direct communication with the team.
Documents may be attached and voice annotations added to the platform so as to make technical decisions quickly.
The team can then confirm that all upgrades and service work have been completed.
DEWA will use HoloLens to visualise its Smart Power Plant, provide an interactive 3D model for the plants’ equipment, and offer remote expert assistance; including access to maintenance job cards, equipment, training manuals, and other operating procedures.
HoloLens will allow DEWA to obtain virtual estimations related to the remote maintenance of the smart power plants, Dubai Media Office reported.
Remarking on the platform's adoption, HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and CEO of DEWA, said: "Microsoft HoloLens enhances DEWA’s position as one of the most prominent utilities in the world to use this technology, which contributes towards stakeholders’ happiness.
