Resource management and conservation will be the focus of the newly announced Mining Technology Excellence Centre for Sustainable Mining in Dhanbad, India, a tandem effort of Dassault Systèmes and the TEXMiN (Technology Innovation in Exploration and Mining) Foundation –Technology Innovation Hub of IIT (ISM) Dhanbad.
The centre will offer technology support and workforce training for mining and other associated industries. Dassault’s role in the facility will be experimental learning using its 3DExperience platform that will provide complete pit-to-port optimisation, from geological modelling and mine engineering to workforce and production scheduling, supply chain optimisation, portfolio optimisation and plant design.
“We are excited to collaborate with Dassault Systèmes for setting up the Mining Technology Excellence Centre and giving our students the opportunity to experience on the job learning environment via virtual simulations. We are committed to train the new generation of innovators, startups, and professionals with future-ready innovation technologies,” said Naresh Soni, CEO of TexMin and IIT (ISM) Dhanbad.
“We believe that this will be an important milestone for the mining industry in India.”
