At the end of December 2012, Sandvik Mining signed a Mining Systems contract with Sasol Mining (Pty) Ltd for the Shondoni Mine Materials Handling project in South Africa. The value of the contract is approximately SEK 650M and will contribute to Sandvik Mining’s business during the years 2013 until 2015.
The order entails the supply of materials handling systems, both underground and surface, for a new coal mine. The scope of supply includes engineering design, procurement and construction for the Shondoni Mine Materials Handling system.
“The size and complexity of this system and the fact that Sandvik provides a complete integrated mining system of Sandvik surface and underground mining equipment, again demonstrates our capability to deliver wide-ranging high-tech solutions in the area of continuous mining and materials handling applications”, says Gary Hughes, President of the Sandvik Mining business area.
