Xstrata Coal has chosen to upgrade its existing fleet of simulators to three PRO3 base simulators, the new generation in advanced training simulators, and a range of equipment module units from Immersive Technologies .
The purchase of these PRO3 base training simulators supports Xstrata Coal's 'SafeCoal' approach, which drives the delivery of correct safety skills training to their operator workforce. The new PRO3 simulators enable Xstrata Coal to simulate a range of risk free emergency scenarios with incredible realism. It is also a useful tool for pre-employment screening, targeted, and refresher training.
Immersive Technologies Chief Executive Officer, Peter Salfinger says Xstrata Coal's PRO3 base simulator purchase demonstrates the company's commitment to operator safety.
"Globally Xstrata are now utilising 14 advanced equipment simulators together with some 27 interchangeable equipment module, Conversion Kits, from Immersive Technologies. This makes Xstrata one of our largest customers and we look forward to continuing to support each site and further our relationship into the future," says Salfinger.
The PRO3 is the newest generation of advanced training simulators available to the mining industry and it delivers many technological advancements, such as a seamless 180 degree visual display system and the unique Real View feature that dynamically adjusts the perspective of the trainee operator to provide a real world view outside the cabin whilst simultaneously increasing the operator's level of depth perception and safety awareness.
