Immersive Technologies will provide an on-site training solution to a large copper mine in Chile.
A MAJOR multi-national mining company has chosen to integrate an Immersive Technologies’ fully staffed on-site training solution at one of its copper mines near Santiago, Chile. Over this three year engagement, Immersive Technologies specialists will carry out operator risk assessments, training and drive continuous improvement projects targeted at specific mine operational performance gaps.
The mine has also engaged Immersive Technologies to provide management reporting and administration of training materials to standardize the training process and ensure that the program achieves a reduction in operational risk, reduction in operating cost and an increase in site productivity. These services will be delivered with the aid of leading operator training technology, the PRO3-B Advanced Equipment Simulator, also supplied by Immersive Technologies.
In 2001 the first Immersive training solutions were provided from the Immersive Technologies’ Latin American regional sales and support office and since then more than 60 sites and training schools in the region have adopted Immersive Technologies as a partner in addressing the growing training demand.
The company’s Latin America vice president Manfredo Manfredi says, “Immersive is in a unique position to provide the best trained, best equipped and most effective specialists to manage your operator training program. Because we have developed the most widely used continuous improvement and operator training methodology in mining, we can provide staff that will immediately add value to your organization’s bottom line results.”
These on-site specialists are not easily available from the industry. Each candidate is trained in Immersive’s exclusive technology integration and operator training methodology. They are also embedded with Immersive’s global support network and have direct access to exclusive intellectual property for mine operator training. The end result is a value added service that is fully backed by Immersive Technologies, and their demonstrated capability to reduce mining risk.
Immersive Technologies is a proven and tested supplier of surface and underground advanced equipment simulators to the global mining industry. The company has achieved this unique position by focusing on its mission to make every mining and earthmoving equipment operator in the world safer and their employer more profitable through its simulation technologies.
