Adani Skill Development Centre opens cargo handling equipment training simulator facility at Krishnapatnam


Hyderabad, 03rd March 2022: A Cargo Handling Equipment Training Simulator facility was inaugurated at the Adani Skill Development Centre (ASDC), Krishnapatnam. With this, the Krishnapatnam center now has three types of ARI simulators – wagon loader, mobile crane, and earth moving equipment simulators.

These simulators are advanced training tools to effectively train and evaluate operators on safe loading, lifting, digging, and dumping techniques. Its design is based on the actual equipment and recreates realistic operations of the equipment. Operators using cranes or loaders, especially at ports, when trained on these simulators, gain the skills they require to operate such heavy equipment safely and efficiently.  

The ASDC has procured the equipment to provide training to the workforce at the Adani Krishnapatnam Port Ltd (AKPL) as part of various courses since these aid in providing skills outside of the real equipment. This training will prepare the operators in such a way that accidents and loss of property and life will be averted to a great extent.  

The wagon loader equipment simulator is used to load coal, cement, and fertilizer, and it will assist operators in loading materials in a systematic and loss-free manner. At present, 200 operators are working in the Engineering and Training Services (ETS) department. The mobile crane equipment simulator has nine types of design and is most useful in container terminals and the ETS department. This is the backbone of port operations. There are nearly 350 operators working in these two departments and this training will immensely benefit them in operations like loading and discharge of containers. The earthmoving equipment simulator involves seven types of operations and is useful for the operators.

“We are extremely delighted to share with you that a Cargo Handling Equipment Training Simulator facility was inaugurated at ASDC, Krishnapatnam. This cutting-edge technology will train and prepare our operators working at the ports to carry out their work smoothly and efficiently,” Mr. Jatin Trivedi, Chief Operating Officer, Adani Skill Development Centre.

The event was graced by the presence of eminent dignitaries like Shri GJ Rao, Director, Ports, and Shri Avinash Chand Rai, CEO AKPL.
