Arab Swiss Engineering Co. (ASEC) has announced its signing of a protocol with the Iraqi conglomerate KAR Group for manpower technical development.

Through its academy for cement technology technical training, ASEC plans to carry out an intensive and wide-ranging manpower development plan for KAR Group’s cement plant, Qarachog, in Erbil, Iraq. The plant came online in 2017.

The cooperation protocol aims at the technical development of domestic calibers of engineers, chemists, and technicians. This will be done through providing tailored programmes, blending technological theory with best practices in cement manufacturing process and optimisation. ASEC Academy will utilise both in-class and on-the-job training, in addition to simulator training for mill and kiln operators. A pool of the company’s experts and instructors from various specialities will support the development programme, either through tutoring or supervising the onsite sessions.

The company has noted that the ASEC Academy has been collaborating with the Iraqi cement companies since 2005.

“We are committed to supporting our clients’ growth and assisting in developing manpower skills through quality training and knowledge sharing,” said ASEC’s Managing Director. “We are glad to resume our cooperation and support to the Iraqi cement industry and we look forward to furthering our partnership over the near future.”
