Indonesia’s largest mining contractor PT Pamapersada Nusantara (Pama) continues to receive strong results from its simulation based training program with additional products and services purchased from the industry’s leading supplier of Advanced Equipment Simulators, Immersive Technologies.
Pama, a subsidiary of PT United Tractors, produced over 68 million tonnes of coal in 2009 and has a workforce in excess of 20,000. This most recent simulator purchase included a transportable base simulator, Komatsu truck equipment
module and a five year support package.
With four Immersive Technologies Advanced Equipment Simulators already in operation at sister sites Adaro, Bontang, Cliungsi and Sangatta, Pama’s most recent purchase at its Kideco site provides additional capacity for the company to reach its target of safely and effectively training 2000 equipment operators annually.
To reach this significant target, Pama has also purchased Immersive Technologies’ new ‘Training Systems Integration (TSI)’ service, which provides mine sites with a detailed and practical roadmap for simulation training application based on global best practises.
The consultative package includes site visits by specialised application engineers, training curriculums and set of practical resources to ensure sites gain maximum return on their investment.
Immersive Technologies Regional Manager – South East Asia, Nicky Suwandy said, “With four simulators in use already across its organisation, Pama recognises the long and short term benefits simulation training provides. With the large number of new operators required to be trained for field operation, there has been no capacity to conduct the necessary refresher training required to ensure high levels of operational efficiency and safety.”
“This additional simulator is the first step in a continual improvement program for experienced operators to focus on productivity gains from operator optimization training.”
Immersive Technologies has recently opened a dedicated regional office in Jakarta Indonesia to support the large number of Advanced Equipment Simulators in the region and the expected additional growth during 2010/11.
