Epiroc wins large mining equipment order in India
The Indian company Hindustan Zinc Limited has placed a sizable order for mining equipment and aftermarket support with Epiroc

Hindustan Zinc Limited in India has given a sizable order for mining equipment and aftermarket support to Epiroc, a premier productivity and sustainability partner for the mining and construction industries.

Third-largest producer of silver and the second-largest producer of zinc worldwide is Hindustan Zinc, a division of Vedanta Group. Along with rigs for production drilling, face drilling, and rock reinforcing, the company has placed an order for a fleet of mine trucks. The machinery will be utilised at its mines in the northwest Indian state of Rajasthan, specifically in the areas of Rajpura Dariba, Zawar, Sindesar Khurd, Rampura Agucha, and Kayad.

The equipment order was scheduled for 2Q24 and has an approximate value of SEK 215 million. A comprehensive service and maintenance contract covering a duration of six to eight years is also provided for the equipment.

Helena Hedblom, President and CEO of Epiroc, stated, “We have a long-standing and fruitful partnership with Hindustan Zinc, and we are happy to continue supporting the company on its journey towards operations that are as safe and productive as possible.”

Arunkumar Govindarajan, President of Epiroc India, continued, “Epiroc has supported the development of Hindustan Zinc in India with underground mining equipment since the 1980s.” “To support the “Make in India” initiatives, more than half of the machines in this order will be delivered from Epiroc’s Nashik manufacturing facility.”

The Simba E70 S production drilling rig, the Boomer M2D face drilling rig, the Cabletec M10 S rock-reinforcement rig, and the Minetruck MT65 S are among the equipment that was ordered. The machines belong to the Smart series, as indicated by the “S” on them. Among the machine’s features is Epiroc’s Rig Control System (RCS), which enables remote control and automation.

Beginning with 3Q24, deliveries will take place until early 2025.
