Following a short introduction to FPInnovations, including the company's role and areas of expertise, our speaker will present some of the operational challenges and limitations for ground-based equipment on steep slopes. The presentation will outline and discuss the concepts and types of winch-assist technology, the necessary planning and layout steps, and the logistical and practical challenges of implementation.


Dr. Dzhamal Amishev

Dzhamal holds three university degrees in forestry with both biological and engineering backgrounds—forest management (University of Forestry, Bulgaria, B.Sc. 2003); silviculture (Virginia Tech, M.Sc. 2005); and forest engineering (Oregon State University, PhD 2008). As harvesting researcher at Scion (New Zealand), he focused on steep slope harvesting productivity monitoring, analysis, and improvement; harvesting systems efficiency and innovation; and logging industry technology transfer. In 2014, as transport planner/despatcher at FDL (New Zealand), he gained experience into the forest products supply chain and transportation management. He joined FPInnovations in 2015 and has since worked mainly on projects related to steep slope harvesting. In the last few months he has been involved in projects related to automation and robotics in forest operations. He has published several scientific manuscripts, internal reports, and technical notes.
