MISIS will train personnel for the Tashkent Metallurgical Plant
The Tashkent Metallurgical Plant (TMZ) signed a memorandum of cooperation between the enterprise and the Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloys (NUST MISIS) in the field of personnel training.
In accordance with this document, the parties will carry out joint research programs, projects for the creation and development of science-intensive and resource-saving technologies, exchange scientific and technical information, innovative technologies and specialists for industrial development, carry out research, development and technological work. …
During the event, which was attended by the heads and specialists of TMZ and senior officials from MISiS and its branch in Almalyk, the issues of personnel training for TMZ were discussed in detail in connection with the uniqueness of the production process and the latest equipment that will be used here.
The productivity of the plant is 500 thousand tons of cold-rolled metal per year, which practically will satisfy not only the needs of our country, but also the export of these products to the countries of near and far abroad. But TMZ has the possibility of increasing production volumes up to 750 thousand tons per year.
Speaking at the event, the first vice-rector of NUST MISIS, Doctor of Technical Sciences Sergei Salikhov noted that the new metallurgical enterprise will become unique not only for Uzbekistan, but also for all post-Soviet countries. He stressed that MISIS is ready to provide practical assistance in the short and long term in training personnel for the Tashkent Metallurgical Plant. Several options for cooperation were proposed, which were practically implemented at similar enterprises.
One of the options is the training of targeted specialists who could undergo special training at the institute and in the field of research activities directly at the enterprise. This, as S. Salikhov noted, would be very interesting for both parties.
Variants of theoretical short-term training in the Almalyk branch of NUST MISIS were also proposed with the involvement of the teaching staff from the head university and advanced training of the current staff in various areas.
“The agreement signed today, I hope, will have a positive effect on the selection of TMZ personnel, advanced training of engineering and technical workers, research work in the metallurgical sphere,” said Sergey Vladimirovich.
“Cooperation with the Moscow Institute of Steel and Alloys is very important for us,” Olga Pak, Head of HR Department at TMZ, said in an interview with our correspondent. “After all, the personnel of the future plant will be based on local specialists and workers. The imported equipment supplied is ultra-modern, none of the domestic personnel has ever worked on it. Therefore, at first, it is planned to train our employees at the existing metallurgical enterprises in Russia. “
