ANGOLA’S Diamon company Endiama evaluates proposal to install Mining Operations stimulators
The National Diamond Company of Angola is evaluating a proposal aimed at installing, in the near future, simulators for training mining operators at the ENDIAMA Technical-Professional Training Centre, located in Saurimo, Lunda Sul.
The information was provided, Monday 10th April, in Luanda, by the director of Studies and Projects at the company, Ady Van-Dúnem. The person in charge made it known that the aforementioned equipment allows technicians who will operate an excavator or a bulldozer machine to experience a reality closer to the working environment observed in a given mine.
“It is true that a technician who operates these types of equipment must be trained. But it is not very convenient for him to train already on the machine itself because he does not know it well and it can damage it, despite having an instructor at his side, which can also be more costly, which is why we are studying a proposal with a view to reversing this situation”, he said.
ENDIAMA-EP’s Studies and Projects Department is multidisciplinary and is focused on the challenges of geosciences, analysis, research and statistical treatment.
