Yokogawa Australia has donated more than $45,000 worth of process control instrumentation to universities and TAFE colleges in Australia and New Zealand to assist in the training of the next generation of instrumentation technicians and engineers.
The educational institutions that have received the Yokogawa instruments are RMIT in Victoria, Wagga Wagga TAFE in NSW, Challenger TAFE in Western Australia and Christchurch Polytechnic Institute of Technology in New Zealand.
Yokogawa Australia’s Sales and Marketing Director, Russell Palmer, said that the company views such donations as an essential part of its corporate citizenship.
“It’s important that apprentices and engineering students have access to current technology so that they are abreast of the latest advancements in instrumentation.”
Yokogawa’s instrumentation and control systems are used in a variety of industries, including mining, manufacturing, energy, water and waste water, and oil and gas.
