Pilot plants & training plants

Training solutions for the process & energy sector

 

GUNT has been known for decades as the leading manufacturer of educational systems, popular in engineering departments of universities and colleges.

Another field of GUNT’s activities are industrial training plants to cater for the specific training needs of the industry.

 

GUNT training systems for industry are absolutely authentic:

  • handling real-world industrial equipment components
  • detailed familiarisation with plants and processes
  • familiarisation with and application of industrial automation technology
  • operating plants
  • understanding and executing maintenance and servicing procedures
  • aspects of plant and occupational safety

 

Complete course concepts with diverse problems can be constructed and the training plant can be the center of training for several weeks.
