Opti-cal Survey Equipment, in partnership with UK Plant Operators, have developed a unique simulator based training course designed to give practical skills and knowledge to both experienced operators and absolute beginners. And since the biggest construction project in Europe is well underway at Hinkley point Opti-cal’s Machine Control school of excellence is on site working with operators and engineers as they embrace the future of construction.
To improve the productivity of the 24hr rolling works on the site all the machines are fitted with Leica Geosystems Machine Control systems allowing faster digging without the loss of precision. The site also pushes the boundaries by adopting the Leica ConX cloud-based collaboration software. Sections of the dig model can be transmitted to any machine from the safety and convenience of the site office. Updates are sent and progress monitored in real-time significantly reducing downtime on site.
New technology however must be embraced by the operator and that’s where Opti-cal’s unique Machine Control school comes into its own. Nearly 150 operators will have passed under the tutelage of our experts by the end of the month bringing them up to speed on how the construction is going to run in the future and leaving them safe in the knowledge that they have the skills to make them indispensable.
