June 27, 2011 - PRLog -- This purchase 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 emergency scenarios with incredible realism without any risk exposure to people or equipment. It is also a useful tool for pre-employment screening, targeted and refresher training.

Immersive Technologies Chief Executive Officer, Peter Salfinger said, “This multiple simulator purchase by Xstrata Coal demonstrates their commitment to the safety of their operators through the implementation of the industry’s most advanced and accurate training equipment.”

“Globally Xstrata are now utilizing 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.”

To mark this special purchase, Xstrata Coal representatives flew to Immersive Technologies’ headquarters in Perth Western Australia in June for commissioning and hand over.

Immersive Technologies will deliver its Training Systems Integration (TSI) and TrainerAdvantage™ programs to Xstrata Coal to ensure rapid and effective integration of the new technology thereby enabling the sites to achieve their training objectives as planned.

The PRO3 is the newest generation of advanced training simulators available to the mining industry and it delivers many technological advancements. Two of these include a seamless 180 degree visual display system and a unique feature called Real View that dynamically adjusts the perspective of the trainee operator to provide a true real-world view outside of the cabin whilst simultaneously increasing the operator’s level of depth perception and safety awareness.
