June 6, Ranchi, India – The Common Engineering Facility Centre – a joint collaboration of JSC “RPA CNIITMASH” (a subsidiary of Atomenergomash, a machine-building division of Rosatom) and Indian public sector undertaking Heavy Engineering Corporation Limited (HEC Ltd) - started functioning today.
The first 23 attendees from various regions of India are part-taking in the training program for “Technologies and Equipment for Welding of Items for Heavy and Power Engineering”. For the next two months they will attend classes six days in a week. The program includes lectures and practical sessions; and it will conclude with final exams.
In the run up to the course, CNIITMASH has done meticulous preparation to develop the training program tailored specifically for the Indian industry. “We hope that the students will be able to learn a lot from the advanced Russian experience. We are looking forward to the first results; and, of course, we would like this to serve as a template for setting up more joint training centers in the field of engineering and machine-building,” pointed out the Head of Foreign Trade Department of CNIITMASH Andrey Ageev.
In 2018, the experts of the Russian Institute will conduct eight more training courses in the fields of steel melting, metallurgical treatment and electroslag re-melting technologies, destructive and non-destructive testing methods, construction design and technologies for gear manufacturing. The duration of each training course is between one to four months. The training courses will run throughout the year and will enable to improve the skills of personnel of Indian engineering enterprises.
