Burckhardt Compression has modernised its existing training centre at its headquarters in Winterthur, Switzerland. Hands-on training can now be obtained on the Laby®, process gas and hyper compressors together with theoretical education.
The new training centre, with a surface area of approximately 300m², offers a wide variety of training options covering all aspects relating to compressor technology, efficient maintenance and operational compressor reliability. It is located at the headquarters next to the main building where the compressors are engineered and manufactured. In order to meet the requirements of customers that operate either Laby, process gas or hyper compressors, Burckhardt Compression has expanded the range of compressors available for hands-on practice in its training centre. Additionally, the facility has been modernised, which brings an efficient and comfortable environment to the training location.
As an OEM, Burckhardt Compression boasts experienced and highly qualified reciprocating compressor experts, providing tailor-made, theoretical education and practical courses. The head training instructors have extensive knowledge in compressor operation, optimisation and efficient compressor trouble-shooting on international jobs and have a broad technical background. Since the founding of Burckhardt Compression, compressor history trainings were offered just next to its large workshop in order to bring many benefits to the participants. They are now able to gain live impressions on compressor components and different compressors in the assembly stage.
Attendees of the inaugural trainings have provided positive feedbacks. Mr Mehmet Fatih Yavuz, maintenance manager at Petkim said: "For me as an operator it is essential that our process gas and hyper compressors have a high availability and reliability to ensure production on our LDPE plant. Therefore, I need to know the equipment well and train different situations that might occur on training compressors. I was very satisfied with the Burckhardt Compression training. Further, I got a nice impression of Switzerland, their multicultural people and the city of Winterthur."
Courses include hands-on and theoretical training emphasising machine operation, safety, maintenance, reliability, trouble-shooting based on actual case studies, manual instructions and compressor parts. On customers' enquiries, Burckhardt Compression is also able to offer special training combined with our partners Prognost Systems, MT Sealing Technology and Sulzer Innotec, all near our facility. Burckhardt Compression offers also on-site classroom and workshop training containing the same subjects.
