IHC and TID Bring Cutter Suction Training to South Africa
- Business & Finance
The State-of-the-Art TID Cutter Suction Simulator Training is being brought to South Africa for the first time, in a joint effort by IHC Marine & Mineral Projects (IHC MMP) and the Training Institute for Dredging (TID).
After a successful series of sessions in the USA and India this training programme will now be offered to the South African dredging market. The training course is designed for cutter suction dredger operators with a minimum of one year’s experience.
Simulator being used for the training is based on the IHC Beaver 6518® and is equipped with a modern dredging operator desk, featuring the latest automation and controls.
Being the powerful tool to learn about dredge operations, the training offers much-needed practice for the dredge operators under various and specific conditions as well as real-life scenarios, which are provided in a controlled environment.
The training will run for three consecutive weeks, starting January 12, 2015, and will be held at IHC MMP premises in Cape Town, South Africa.
