On May 24, on the basis of the GOLHU "Borisov Experimental Forestry", a republican educational seminar "Modern Technologies in Carrying Woodcutting with the Use of Multi-Operational Techniques of the Swedish Company" Vimek "was held.
The seminar was attended by: First Deputy Minister of Forestry of the Republic of Belarus А.А. Sandpiper; chief forest rangers of regional associations; the main forest rangers of the leshozes exploiting and waiting for the arrival of Vimek technology before the end of this year; chief mechanics of regional associations; chief forester, chief mechanic and operator of the harvester Vimek GOLHU "Kobrin Experimental Forestry"; the head of the division of labor rationing of UE "Belgiproles"; the head of the service center of UP "Bellesexport"; representatives of the Center for Advanced Training of Forestry Workers; representatives of the sectoral media; representatives of Vimek AB in the Republic of Belarus.
The main goal of the seminar is to familiarize forestry specialists with the features of the technology and capabilities of Vimek forest machines in carrying out all types of felling for forest management. In addition, the seminar discussed the motivation of labor of harvester operators in felling care, as well as the topic of evaluating the efficiency of using forest machines in felling care.
The seminar was organized by the Ministry of Forestry of the Republic of Belarus, the Minsk GPLHO, GOLHU "Borisov Experimental Forestry" with the participation of the Representative Office of "Vimek AB" in the Republic of Belarus.
The theoretical part of the seminar was held in the hall of the GOLHU "Borisov Experimental Forestry". The seminar was opened by the First Deputy Minister of Forestry of the Republic of Belarus A.A. Kulik, outlining the main ideas of this seminar, especially pointing out that Vimek forest machines were purchased with the purpose of using them only in the felling area. He also noted that the acquisition by a number of leshozes of only harvesters without forwarders does not allow to take advantage of all the advantages offered by Vimek technology. The main advantage of this technology is the possibility of thinning without the need to cut down the best trees for laying technological corridors due to the dimensions and maneuverability of the harvester and forwarder Vimek.
At the seminar, the reports were made by the chief forester of the Minsk GPLHO, Shakhlevich LV, the head of the representative office of Vimek AB in the Republic of Belarus Rodionov SL, the head of the service center of Bellekseksport Dindelevich DA, the representative of the Center for Advanced Training of Forest Workers economy Karugulev RA
During the presentations, the participants of the seminar were told in detail about the possibilities of Vimek forest machines, the features of their technology and the advantages of using them in comparison with other types of machines, and also in comparison with the work of loggers.
The practical part of the seminar was held in the forest at the felling clearing sites, in the cut-off areas (47 years) and cleaning (17 years). Here the seminar participants could see the harvester and forwarder Vimek and ask questions to the operators.
During the discussion, it was noted that the purchase of forest machines Vimek is very timely and vital for the leshozes. to mechanize felling is not less important than felling of the main use, since the work of the feller is more laborious.
Participants of the seminar noted that the information received at the seminar proved to be very useful for them and will help them organize the work of these machines more correctly on the ground.
