UK start-up, Reality Check, delivers Virtual Reality tour for Anglo American's iron ore asset.

Following a year of reclamation work to the pipeline and a restart of operations of their Brazilian Iron Ore asset Minas-Rio, Anglo American commissioned Reality Check to build a VR tour to show case the operational safety and efficiency of the asset to global investors and stakeholders.

Reality Check worked with Anglo American to build and augment 360° video and photo media creating a Virtual Reality tour of the Minas-Rio mining site in Minas Gerais state, the Pipeline reclamation site and Port Terminal in Rio de Janeiro state, covering over 500 kilometres.
John van Eeghen, CEO and Founder at Reality Check said: “Virtual Reality tours enable heavy industry to offer an unprecedented level of transparency to the global investor and stakeholder communities on demand and at scale, for a fraction of the cost. We live in a globally connected world and VR is part of the New Normal.”
