ISLAMABAD: (APP) Under its skill development campaign called, `Hunarmand Thar, Khushhaal Pakistan', Sindh Engro Coal Mining Company (SECMC) together with its partners has initiated a drive for the employment of experienced local HTV drivers for its mining project in Thar Coal Block II.
Under this drive, a five day campaign would run to select over 200 experienced HTV licensed drivers from District Tharparkar, Umerkot and adjoining districts who would be considered for further evaluation, a statement issued here on Wednesday said.
Upon successful completion of the week long selection drive and subsequent evaluation by SECMC's third party contractor and China Machinery and Engineering Corporation (CMEC) who are the EPC Contractor for Mining Project in Thar Block-II, these drivers would be inducted in the mining Project in Block II.
From the outset, the pinnacle success of SECMC's project led activity in Thar has been its eagerness to ensure the participation and development of the communities in its midst - the Project itself is one of great national importance and it will also seek to bring prosperity to the underprivileged population of Tharparkar.
A unique pioneering initiative such as the one being initiated under the banner of `Hunarmand Thar, Khushhaal Pakistan' will seek to train over 1,500 locals, in several different trades required for the skill manpower requirement for both the mining project being undertaken by SECMC and the power plant project, being undertaken by Engro Powergen Thar Limited.
