Lutra Sim-Plant

  • Completion date: December 2018

  • Track record: The project was completed on time and to budget. The Sim-Plant is currently used as a part of the NZQA Level 4 qualifications assessment provided by Connexis.


AFI created a suite of water treatment and wastewater treatment Plant SCADA simulators to be used as assessment tools for students completing NZQA Level 4 SCADA water operations training and competency assessment testing. The simulators present a set of problematic plant operation scenarios that the users must correctly diagnose and select the necessary corrective action.

Sessions can be purchased and booked via the Sim-Plant marketplace website.
