Sandvik has received a large mining equipment order from the Chinese global mining services provider JCHX Mining Management Co., Ltd., to be used in the Kamoa-Kakula copper mine and the Kamoya copper and cobalt mine in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC). The order is valued at SEK 210 million ($20 million) and will be booked in the fourth quarter of 2022.

“Our highest-capacity intelligent load and haul equipment has been in operation at Kamoa since 2019, and this order is a testament to the strength and quality of the solutions we provide,” said Mats Eriksson, president of Sandvik Mining and Rock Solutions.

The order is for a fleet of load and haul equipment. The equipment will primarily be delivered during 2023, but with the first delivery expected in 2022.
