Proforma Affiliate Owner Wins $6 Million Virtual Reality Contract
Rich Mitchell, owner of ProMediaAspire, has secured a $6 million contract with a nuclear power company across 13 of its nuclear generation stations. The contract provides a format to train workers through the use of cutting-edge virtual reality (VR) technology to help reduce health risks to employees.
Mitchell is utilizing VR 3D modeling to create virtual rooms and floor plans 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.When Mitchell became aware of the opportunities in nuclear power training, he immediately began working with Proforma’s Vendor Relations team to identify a list of Preferred Suppliers that had the right set of resources and experience. The network’s Vendor Relations team was able to pair him with a Proforma Preferred Supplier that had a background in VR training in the energy, aerospace and military sectors.
“It is exciting to have an owner like Rich on our team,” said Greg Muzzillo, founder of Proforma. “I admire his ability to find unique and cutting-edge opportunities, and use our resources to turn those winning opportunities into multimillion-dollar successes.”
“This was a win-win contract that I could have never done without Proforma,” said Mitchell. “Our ability to use VR in this unique setting will significantly impact nuclear power companies who adopt this technology, minimizing the risk to employees and saving themselves millions of dollars in operational efficiencies.”
Mitchell, a member of Proforma’s Million and Multi-Million Dollar Club, received the Innovator of the Year Award at this year’s Proforma Annual Convention and Family Reunion for his work on this VR project.
