Yokogawa SA’s training manager, Nico Marneweck, delivered on-site basic product training from 20-24 July at Eskom’s Tutuka power station – one of its key customers.
The training course was developed in accordance with Tutuka’s C&I manager, Andre Krugel’s, specific needs. The basic field instrumentation training was offered over a period of five days and included pressure, temperature, flow, level and liquid analysis.
The objective of the training was to establish a platform of expertise that would enable the six delegates to perform autonomous maintenance, commissioning, first line troubleshooting and application routines on product ranges from a variety of vendors, including: Vega, Wika, LappKabel, Metso and Bürkert.
Yokogawa says the training provided it with an excellent opportunity from which to launch similar training projects in power and other industries.
