Rich Mitchell, owner of ProMediaAspire (PPAI 284338, D1), a member of Proforma’s Million & Multi-Million Dollar Club and recipient of the network’s Innovator of the Year Award, has secured a $6 million contract with a nuclear power company across 13 of their nuclear generation stations. The contract provides a format to train workers through the use of cutting-edge virtual reality technology to help reduce health risks to employees.

Mitchell is utilizing Virtual Reality 3D modelling to create virtual rooms and floorplans of nuclear power plants that will be used to train workers to perform quickly and efficiently on plant maintenance and repair. This technology will reduce employees’ work hours inside the plant and limit overall long-term radiological exposure.

Mitchell is working with Proforma’s vendor relations team to identify a list of preferred suppliers that has the right set of resources and experience. The network’s vendor relations team was able to pair Mitchell with a Proforma preferred supplier that had a background in virtual reality training in the energy, aerospace and military sectors.
