PAMA expands investment in Immersive Technologies
19 November 2017 – After nearly 15 years of using training solutions from Immersive Technologies, Indonesian based PT Pamapersada Nusantara (PAMA) has furthered their investment with the addition of seven new haul truck simulator modules to extend the capability of their eight existing Advanced Equipment Simulators. The investment is an upgrade to their current simulator portfolio and aligns with their integrated simulation training standard operating procedures.
“Well over a decade ago PAMA bought their first Advanced Equipment Simulator from Immersive Technologies. Since then they measured significant return on investment (ROI) as they progressively built a fleet of ten simulators. 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 scrutinized. 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.
PAMA is a previous award winner of Immersive Technologies’ Global Business Improvement Award. The Jembayan – Separi site saw reduced traffic incidents with an estimated US$330,000 savings in property damage in one year. Jembayan – Separi has used Immersive Technologies Simulators as part of their workforce development program for more than twelve years achieving a 42% reduction in equipment damage and 16% productivity improvement along with successful fuel reduction initiatives.
“We are proud to support the impressive gains achieved by PAMA – they have been early adopters of our latest technologies and are seeing the results in being so forward thinking,” Suwandy says.
