QTV - To meet the demand for effective coal exploitation, Vietnam Coal and Mineral Industries Group (VINACOMIN) is boosting cooperation with Japanese enterprises on improving production capacity and safety management for coal pits.

Japanese experts transferred coal mining technology to VINACOMIN laborers

Thanks to Japanese experts’ support, currently, Ha Lam’s longwall systems are exploiting output, exceeding the designed capacity. Besides Ha Lam , Japanese experts are also providing technical assistance to exploit and  ensure safety in many coal pits in Quang Ninh province. Under the cooperation agreement, in 2017, VINACOMIN sent 74 trainees to Japan . At the same time, JOGMEC Corporation also opened training courses to transfer coal mining technology to 500 VINACOMIN staff and laborers. The cooperation with Japan has helped many coal units improve the level of science and technology, thus improving coal production capacity.
