PAMA had eight Immersive Technologies equipment simulators and has been using Immersive products for about 15 years. It has now added seven new haul-truck simulator modules to "extend the capability" of the existing simulators.
"Since [PAMA's original investment] … they measured significant return on investment as they progressively built a fleet of 10 simulators," said Immersive Asia regional vice president, Nicky Suwandy.
"We are especially proud of their most recent investment in seven new Komatsu haul truck simulator modules, as there are ongoing challenges in the thermal coal market, and every expenditure is being scrutinised."
Their continued loyalty is a true testament to the value our simulators are providing," says Nicky Suwandy Regional Vice President - Asia at Immersive Technologies.
"PAMA sees Immersive Technologies training simulation capability as an essential part of our operation. It plays a key role in maintaining the safe and productive operation of our mining fleet, via the optimization of our equipment operators." Says Roberto Handoko, Operation General Manager at PAMA.
One PAMA site, Jembayan-Separi is said to have achieved a 42% reduction in mining equipment damage, a 16% productivity improvement, and reduced fuel use, over more than 12 years of using simulator training.
Privately-owned Immersive says it has simulator modules working in 44 countries.
