A fleet of articulating and telescopic rough terrain Genie GS scissor lifts, S, Z and also Xtra Capacity (XC) boom lifts, owned by Kinross Tasiast Company and operated by its subsidiary Tasiast Mauritania Limited S.A., are assisting in work at height applications at one of the largest gold mines in Africa, located in the Inchiri region of north-west Mauritania. Tasiast utilizes its Genie units on a daily basis for the maintenance of the mine’s processing plant, heavy equipment and power distribution lines, as well as for construction projects onsite. To keep them safe and running smoothly, the company turned to Genie for technical training and a Genie Service Solutions (GSS) Preventative Maintenance contract, that involves in-depth inspections and operational health checks performed on a twice-yearly basis. The training to date has included three weeks of instructor- led training, backed by lessons followed via the Genie Tech Pro eLearning website.
Mohamed, MEM Training and Development Superintendent, said: “In terms of training, the Genie eLearning platform is an efficient, flexible solution that offers access to a wide range of topics. Our technicians have already completed more than fifty different on-line modules that have enabled them to acquire solid, theoretical foundations. Onsite, the quality of the training provided by David Petitjean, Genie Technical Services Manager, North & Central Africa, was highly appreciated by our team. We are already seeing a significant improvement in their maintenance skills that is leading to increasing the uptime and the performance of our Genie fleet.”
