VS Summer Simulator 4K Full Scope
December 2019
Maria Pérez travels to the Corys facilities in Jacksonville, Florida, to collaborate in the factory acceptance test of the full scope simulator for the control room of the VC Summer nuclear power plant.
It is a new simulator that will replace the training simulator currently used by the central. The new graphics that make up this simulator have been developed entirely from Thunder España Simulación in 4K. The challenge with this new simulator is that it requires that the controls and instruments have the same appearance, size and location as the panels in the real control room, including the vertical panels.

For this CORYS has designed and built a simulator that includes 51 4K touch monitors and 36 computers. This allows an exact replica of the panel placement in the actual control room.

SimTech 2018
September 2018
María Pérez y Esther Cuevas, members of the company, travel to Nashville (Tennessee) to attend the SimTech conference, sponsored by CORYS.

The SimTech conference is the industry's leading conference for the nuclear power, railroad simulation and hydrocarbon industries, with technical presentations from the best simulation engineers and training experts in North America.

The conference was attended by the Commander of the NASA Space Mission, Captain Mark Kelly, in charge of delivering the opening speech at the SimTech 2018 conference.

We reached the 500 Miles of Railway Simulation
July 2018
Thunder España Simulación is consolidated in the development of train simulators having completed multiple projects, both for freight and passenger trains, among which include the Cobourg - Kingston (VIARAIL Ontario), Dadeland South - Miami International Airport (Miami Dade) Transit Metro Rail) or Chicago Ogilvie Transportation Center - Harvard (UPRR Half Cab Options) among others.

It should be noted that to date, almost 500 simulation miles have been developed in our Santander offices for railroad trips in the United States.

New Simulators 4K
May 2018
The proliferation of large format screens requires viewing with more nuances and details, which currently offers the Ultra High Definition 4K.

That is why, from Thunder Spain, the first 4K glass panel simulator is developed in the control room for the Salem nuclear power plant.

UHD screens offer up to four times more detail than Full HD (1,080p) resolution, with eight million pixels compared to two million, which allows a display without distortion and with all the details even at close range. But one of the advantages goes beyond quadrupling the resolution, focusing on the high quality and clarity of the content when it is in motion and in the best contrast dynamics.
