South Africa’s first MC430 springs into action
South Africa’sfirst Sandvik MC430 continuous miner was in operation in Mpumalanga only a few months after it was purchased at the Electra Mining Africa 2012 trade show.
STA Coal Mining has been impressed with the MC430’s power-to-weight ratio and its cutting rates in the hard coal of Mpumalanga’s coalfields.
“The MC430 has several features that will help us maintain our excellent safety statistics,” says Bob Nkosi, director partner at STA. “I believe the purchase of this machine from Sandvik heralds the beginning of a solid relationship between our two companies.”
