The Nagasaki Coal Mine Technology Training Center was established following the closure of Matsushima Coal Mine Co. Ltd. in November 2001. A part of mining concession area formerly owned by Matsushima Coal Mine was then purchased to be used as training facilities. The training program is focused on transfer of coal mine technology, and conducted by NEDO (New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization). The objectives of the training program is to promote the transfer of technology on underground coal mining to engineers from coal producing countries such as China, Indonesia, and Vietnam. For these countries, the technology will serve as valuable tool to face changes that will likely occur in near future. These changes include a shift in mining method from open cut to underground mining, or deterioration in mining conditions as mining locations become deeper and deeper. Through the technological cooperation and transfer of Japan's coal mining technology, efforts were made to achieve the stable coal supply-demand in Asian region and stable supply of foreign coal to Japan.
