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, Uzbekistan. This marks the 45th country globally that utilises Immersive Technologies workforce optimisation 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 programme will aid in increasing workforce optimisation 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 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,” commented Stanislav Kondratenko, Technical Director of Zeppelin Central Asia Machinery LLC.
“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 optimise production output and safety. This is yet another example of the successful collaboration between Immersive Technologies and OEM Dealers around the world,” added Oleg Lyutyy, Business Development Advisor at Immersive Technologies.
Zeppelin has also acquired TrainerAdvantageTM certification programme 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 and 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 optimisation 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.”
