Create (simulated) environments for practising exceptional (process) situations in the mineral processing industries.
Outotec Oyj provides technologies and services for the metal and mineral processing industries. The firm concentrates on producing machines and methods which facilitate the various stages of extractive metallurgy and mineral processing, from ore through to pure metal or mineral, including the grinding and physical separation of ores and the smelting and leaching of base and precious metals. Learning and practicing exceptional process situations, such as failures of critical equipment and process start-up or shut-down sequences, are only possible to do safely and cost-effectively in a virtual, simulated environment.
Virtual training to improve the efficiency, motivation and skills of system operators.
Cybercom has developed Outotec’s new training concept, Virtual Experience Training (VEX), which is designed mainly for concentration plant operators in the mineral processing industries. Process automation system training that is done with the VEX-solution improves the efficiency, motivation and skills of the system operators.
A unique training concept within the industry, VEX utilizes the extensive knowledge of Outotec in minerals processing. It provides operators with a safe and controlled environment for studying process dynamics, process equipment and control systems. Thanks to the solution, Outotec is able to provide this training globally, which boosts the company’s service turnover.
