ISM remote installation
Simtars staff are in the process of remotely installing a Spontaneous Combustion Laboratory at the IIT (ISM), Indian Institute of Technology (Indian School of Mines) in Dhanbad.
The team were planning on installing the laboratory in person, but the project was delayed due to the international travel restrictions.
Despite these challenges and the occasional language barrier, the multi-skilled team have turned adversity into opportunity through careful planning and lateral thinking.
Simtars secured the services of a local Indian agency, Sujyoti, to assist and as a result the Spontaneous Combustion Laboratory project can be completed and commissioned at the IIT(ISM) campus.
This will complete the collaborative agreement between IIT(ISM), Coal India and Simtars and enable joint future research that will return mutual benefits to the regions.
