South West College has teamed up with Larne based B9 to capture new footage which will be used as part of training materials for the industry leading course.

South West College alongside partners including the European Institution for Innovation – Technology, Dublin City University, The Arctic University of Norway and PROMEA are developing a HySkills course to train those organisations working with Hyrdogen. As part of the course, partners have introduced a series of new technologies to enhance the learning experience including novel 3D simulations and augmented reality environments to create an engaging learner experience.

Padraig McAlister from South West College recently visited B9’s facilities to capture new footage of hydrogen fuelled buses and an on-site electrolyser which will be embedded into a 3D simulated environment, providing interactive content to help identify key components of these hydrogen technologies. B9 Director, David Surplus OBE said;

‘B9 are delighted to open our facilities to South West College to allow the capture of the inner workings of the equipment we have on-site. We support the work being carried out by the HySkills team which will ensure an educated workforce in hydrogen technologies which will aid us in achieving our overall goal of a functioning hydrogen economy.’
