The teams from TECSUP and Immersive Technologies unveil the newest addition to the TECSUP training offering, an Advanced Equipment Simulator from Immersive Technologies.

As operator excellence focuses more on technology integration, TECSUP has teamed up with Immersive Technologies to deliver the ultimate in operator training. Peru based TECSUP, a technology leader dedicated to educate and train professionals, will be using the latest Advanced Equipment Simulator from Immersive Technologies.

The PRO3-B classroom simulator has been installed on the TECSUP campus and Otto Frech, General Director of TECSUP Centro says, “the acquisition of this simulator marks a milestone in the technological development of TECSUP. The achievement is due to a strategic alliance with Immersive Technologies, worldwide leader in mining simulators. That leadership translates into know-how and in better practices that produce profitability and higher productivity, and therefore a more competitive mining sector. This know-how is in Peru and in TECSUP.”

The new simulator is part of an investment destined for the procurement of new machinery, infrastructure and training of teachers of the Mining Operations course of studies. This new technology is oriented toward improving productivity and safety in mining production.

Currently, the majority of heavy machinery operators have been instructed empirically. “What is being sought with the training through this simulator is to achieve an increase of up to 20% in the operating productivity of a mining project”, pointed out Raúl Flores, expert coordinator of the TECSUP Operator School.

With the acquisition of this simulator, TECSUP will provide mining companies and the construction sector with personnel selection services, certification of competencies and training plans. It will also enable its students in the mining operations specialization to develop supervisor and planning competencies in mining equipment.

The alliance with Immersive Technologies will also enable TECSUP to develop applied research projects, such as determining the optimization curve for the operation based on the yield of the operators and equipment.
