Liberty Industrial invests in excavator training simulation technology
Award-winning Australian demolition giant Liberty Industrial has invested in a state-of-the-art Volvo excavator training simulator. The simulator will travel between Liberty Industrial’s project sites in a purpose built trailer unit that has been converted into a mobile training centre.
The latest in excavator simulation training technology, the Volvo Advanced Training Simulator 5.0 is inspired by aviation industry simulation training, and allows the operator to immerse themselves in a realistic virtual experience. The simulator features a high definition screen and includes realistic graphics and sounds, and a full motion platform incorporating movement and vibration that mimics the experience of operating a machine in a true-to-life scenario.
Operators will navigate simulated demolition, remediation and civil environments, undertaking a range of different virtual excavator operation training exercises such as shearing, sorting, processing, breaking, earth moving, rock handling and high reach demolition training.
Liberty Industrial is the first Australian contractor to invest in this kind of excavator simulation training equipment, with the only other known excavator simulators in Australia being owned and operated by peak Australian civil construction industry body, the Civil Contractors Federation.
