The Challenge

Showcase the business to global investors

Cory Riverside Energy, which owns the UK’s largest energy-from-waste plant, transports approximately 750,000 tonnes of waste annually along the River Thames, producing sufficient electricity to power 160,000 homes.

When the business was put up for sale, Cory needed an innovative way to show potential overseas investors around their plant without affecting operations.

The Solution

360° imagery and exploration.

By combining captivating 360° photos and videos with animated features, we developed an interactive and immersive digital replica of Cory’s operations, showcasing the intricate processes at the recycling plant in Smugglers Wharf, the lighters navigating along the Thames, and the energy recovery facility in Belvedere.

The entire experience was packaged into an app and loaded onto customized VR headsets, which were shipped to potential investors in containers with the Cory logo.

Cory’s CEO credited the premium price they received in the company’s sale to the innovative nature of the business and the use of premium immersive content to tell their story.

Subsequently, our solution has been used successfully in a CSR capacity to demonstrate the openness of the business and has driven a 300,000% return on investment for the client.
