British based Spirax Sarco, the global leader and experts in steam system solutions, and the Myanmar Engineering Society(MES) have today entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for the provision of world class industrial engineering training in the realm of steam and it’s application in Myanmar’s energy and manufacturing sectors.
The course is provided via MES’s Mechanical Engineering Division to graduating students and members with the aim of applying theoretical engineering principles to real-life industrial applications. This will raise technical and engineering skills within Myanmar’s manufacturing workforce, developing the engineering profession and supporting the industrialisation of the nation.
Steam is still the most efficient and cost effective way of transferring heat across the world’s industry with applications in all areas of manufacturing from garment pressing to oil refining and is vital to electricity generation.  Understanding the principles of steam will aid engineers and industry to operate more efficiently, reduce operating costs and improve product quality the growth and global competiveness of the sector. By providing the training Spirax Sarco and the MES are equipping engineers to reduce energy and steam consumption by reducing carbon emissions, greenhouse gases and vapours, all helping drive Myanmar’s industry towards sustainability and co-operation with the environment as the sector grows.
The signing of the MoU took place on Tuesday 2nd February at the Park Royal Hotel, Yangon. Spirax Sarco and the MES were joined by H.E. Andrew Patrick, the British Ambassador, the MES President U Win Khaing , the board of MES, local and regional representatives of Spirax Sarco and over 100 guests from academia and industry.
The MoU was signed by the MES President U Win Khaing and Spirax Sarco’s Country Manager Mr Dave Forte.
During the commemoration the first cohort of students who attended the primary course in December 2015 were awarded with their certificates.
Courses will run across 2016 in Yangon with the expansion to the Mandalay and Taunggyi later this year.
