History and Experience

40+ years of experience

GSE has 40+ years of experience and more than 1,100 simulation and training installations in 50 countries. In 1971, GSE Systems, then Link Simulation, built the first commercial full-scope nuclear power plant simulator and, in 1977, was a pioneer provider of high-fidelity refinery plant simulators and high-fidelity fossil power plant simulators. Since then, GSE has built more full-scope simulators than all of our competitors combined. Combining our simulation background with next-generation training technologies and engineering services, GSE is now a total solutions provider for the energy industry.
