Vuzix Corporation (NASDAQ:VUZI) (FRA:V7XN) revealed on Monday that Valmet, a leading global supplier of technologies and services for the pulp, paper and energy industries, has deployed Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses at PGE Group, the largest vertically-integrated electric utility in Poland.

The Rochester, New York-based company said 1000 Realities, a team of augmented and virtual reality software experts, secured the PGE Group account. The company said that by using 1000 Realities' innovative Edge Realities software platform and the Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses, operators at PGE Energia Odnawialna are now performing “maintenance services” at the Kisielice windfarm.

"The prominent feature of Edge Realities is that any computing is fully outsourced, and it's powering the Vuzix M400 Smart Glasses to provide our customer with real-time guidance and system diagnostic information when and where they need it,” 1000 Realities co-founder Justyna Janicka said in a statement.

“We look forward to supporting the PGE Group as they continue to expand their smart glasses program."

By wearing M400 Smart Glasses equipped with Edge Realities software, operators are able to perform “faster and more precise inspections,” said the company. In addition, they are reporting on the status of machinery in real-time simply by tapping the touchpad on the Vuzix Smart Glasses.

"The versatility of our M400 Smart Glasses continues to drive customer demand across a wide range of industry verticals and use cases by allowing our customers to bring expertise and situational awareness to the field that enables technicians to perform daily maintenance activities more efficiently," said Vuzix CEO Paul Travers.

Vuzix is a leading American supplier of smart glasses and augmented reality technologies.
