In October, Sandvik Mining was awarded a major materials handling contract in South America. The value of the contract exceeds 650 million SEK. The order includes engineering, manufacturing, freight and site services of conveying systems comprising re-locatable and modularized type conveyors, for a surface mine.

“The importance, size and complexity of the conveyor systems and the performance data demonstrate Sandvik Mining’s capability to provide high-tech solutions in the area of continuous mining”, said Gary Hughes, president of the Sandvik Mining business area.
