Visiting from various Exxaro’s Project Management division, the group was led on a tour of mining-related services offered by UP. The engagement aimed to showcase the various Research and Training Solutions which are delivered through multi-disciplinary teams of experts from UP.

The tour took the group to the Centre for Asset Integrity Management (C-AIM), under the leadership of Prof. Stephan Heyns, which offers expertise in asset life-cycle management. At the Virtual Reality (VR) Centre, the delegation experienced the world-class innovative technology which brings real-world scenarios to life in a simulated environment. Prof. Ronny Webber-Youngman shared the many benefits of this technology, including how it is designed to optimise decision-making.

The TuksNovation high-tech incubator visit concluded the tour with a presentation on UP’s ability to connect science and technology for innovation and advancement.
