RAG Mining Solutions GmbH recently ran a two-week employee training course for specialists of a Russian mining company. The central topic in the range of seminars was handling and controlling gas and dust in the German coal mining industry.
In a diverse mix of specialist lectures, visits to all three RAG mines and the training mine in Recklinghausen, as well as applied calculation methods, the German specialists passed on their approach for dealing with the challenges involved with dust and gas to the Russian engineers. The Russian mining company plans to prepare itself for the demands of the future through suitable training. For this purpose, the company is currently collecting information about how to deal with gas, dust, mine ventilation and climate and logistics.
The Russian company is one of the largest producers of hard coal in the world. In light of this, the employees involved at RAG Mining Solutions were particularly pleased that their Russian customers were convinced by their offer. The business relationship between the companies has already been established for several years.
For this reason, the Russian engineers had already been to Germany in the past for key courses and training on Health, Safety and Environmental Protection (HSE). At the end of last year, German specialists visited several of the Russian customer's mines in order to audit them in areas relating to technology and safety.
As soon as the first group had left, the next set of Russian specialists enrolled for February, a sign that the seminar concept had passed the test.
