Zeppelin International, one of the largest Caterpillar® Dealers in Europe and CIS region, with the support of technology and services from Immersive Technologies, is set to provide comprehensive training for both green and experienced personnel operating a range of Caterpillar truck models within the Navoi mine site. This marks the 45th country globally that utilizes Immersive Technologies workforce optimization training solutions.
Simulator-based training establishes a safe environment for experienced operators to expand their expertise, and a risk-free arena for entry level operators to start developing their skills. Zeppelin International has also acquired Immersive Technologies Custom Mine Site (CMS) technology to further train those unfamiliar with the new machinery in a familiar training environment. The program will aid in increasing workforce optimization in the areas of production efficiency and operational safety, while ensuring operators are confident and highly productive when they enter actual site operations.
CMS allows detailed focus to be placed on training requirements specific to each site such as land marks, specific mine site road rules and environmental conditions. Curriculum tailoring to target specific learning outcomes is managed effortlessly with the support of Immersive Technologies Professional Services, delivered on-site via specialist training experts.
“At Zeppelin we have high expectations from Immersive Technologies based on previous results and experiences. They have successfully completed the installation development and will be providing professional services to increase production efficiency and overall safety for the mine site. Utilising this technology and targeted curriculum will aid in increasing output from Navoi’s current headcount.”
“Immersive has been developing and delivering training solutions for Caterpillar equipment for over 27 years. Our IM360 Simulator and Conversion Kits® for CAT® truck models, will provide the ultimate simulation for Zeppelin and the Navoi mine site to optimize production output and safety. This is yet another example of the successful collaboration between Immersive Technologies and OEM Dealers around the world.”
Zeppelin has also acquired TrainerAdvantage™ certification program that includes classroom and hands-on sessions working with the simulator under the instruction of an Immersive Technologies Certified Instructor.
Regional Vice President of EMEA & CIS Johan Stemmet has expressed his excitement in seeing production and safety increases with the introduction of Immersive Technologies training solutions into Uzbekistan.
“Innovation is the future. Production optimization is unthinkable without innovative technologies. I look forward to seeing how the introduction of this level of training increases productivity and safety for Zeppelin International and Navoi NMMC.”
