Huge savings in energy and industry

VR lifts collaboration up to a new level

CEO Ove Ryland in Smartcube Solutions explains how Virtual  Reality  (VR)  gives  huge  savings  through improved project management within the energy sector, industry and manufacturing.

The technology you might think belongs to the future, is here now. Construction companies, infrastructure owners and the energy sector are early adopters of the Vrex technology.

Vrex, created by Vixel, is a virtual workspace where whole projects comes together – in AEC, PEC, Civil Engineering, offshore, industrial application and other cross-diciplinary projects.

Decision-makers and engineers can experience the projects in a 1:1 scale, inside the 3D-models.


  • Vrex lets you work remotely inside your project surrounded by your data in a 1:1 scale
  • Walk around, talk to each other, point and discuss BCF-issues
  • Vrex integrates with most OpenBIM-platforms, and secure a highly efficient and easy workflow

Ove Ryland has worked with digitalisation and transformation in the energy sector for more than 25 years. Smartcube Solutions helps businesses in the energy sector improve their digital thinking and strategy to have more efficient, secure and scalable solutions. 

-Companies must transform to achieve more efficient ways to work together and avoid working in silos. Many areas have improved over the past years, but the processes are in many cases not adopted for the future. With Covid-19, the remote way of working has accelerated ten years forward in time, says Ryland.

In the energy sector, industry and manufacturing it is common that big teams work together cross disciplines. With VR, you can say goodbye to confusing phone-calls and chaotic video-meetings. You can instantly meet with your team in a 1:1 3D-model of your project. It is easier to understand than looking at a 2D-model. No misunderstandings, just clear communication.

Ove Ryland, CEO Smartcube Solutions

-Companies gain a competitive advantage by adopting VR as a working tool. They experience increased productivity, savings and cut travels which reduces the carbon footprint. Vrex and VR lifts collaboration up to a new level. Working in virtual reality increases the quality of decision-making.

Tools for next-gen

The generation growing up today uses VR to communicate. They will expect that these kinds of technologies are available in their workplace. This is the way they are used to interact with each other. They do not have the same boundaries for discussing and sharing that exist today, Ove Ryland adds.

The most powerful VR-application

Vrex is one of the most powerful VR applications on the market for complex project coordination in VR. Vrex delivers significant time and cost savings, including:

  • Early identification of potential problems and mistakes
  • Reduced travel
  • Highy efficient remote collaboration
  • Rapidly fixing issues
  • Shorter decision times

Create better products

The use of VR in manufacturing has great potential

In manufacturing, VR helps you to create better products, and save time and money.

- To get products that meet specifications, prototypes must be created, tested, and then retested. Using VR, manufacturers can eliminate the need to build full-scale models. They can work closer on their specifications and the amount of rework is minimised, says Vixels founder, Rune Vandli.

So why look at your 3D-models with yesterdays 2D-tools, when VR can be implemented in your projects today with minimal effort. You just need VR-googles and internet to join!
