Russian handover

Handing over equipment to customers has become something of a yearly tradition for Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology at the Ugol Rossii & Mining Exhibition.

The Russian city of Novokuznetsk hosted the Ugol Rossii & Mining 2018 exhibition in June, dedicated to mining equipment and technologies. The widely known international event brought together more than 600 equipment suppliers and 35,000 professionals from 24 countries.

At the event, Sandvik showcased a flagship Sandvik MB670-1 bolter miner purchased by SUEK-Kuzbass JSC. The unit was handed over to the customer for deployment at the Yalevskiy mine. The 105-tonne electric track-mounted bolter miner is known for its quality engineering and high performance capabilities. In 2016 its predecessor Sandvik MB670 established a monthly record of  1,272 metres at the Taldinskaya-Zapadnaya-2 mine.

“Sandvik Mining and Rock Technology is a frequent guest at the Ugol Rossii & Mining exhibition,” says Roman Tonyshev, sales area  business line manager for mechanical cutting. “Equipment handover during the event has become a tradition for us. Besides, it is a perfect place to meet new customers, share experiences with industry professionals and demonstrate our latest achievements in mining tools and equipment development.”
