Sandvik Construction has selected Volvo Penta power-generation engines for its new electric-powered track-mounted tertiary crushers.
The new UH450E tertiary crusher was developed by Sandvik in response to market demand and special requests from customers for an electric-powered system. The new-generation UH450E is powered by a Volvo Penta TAD1651GE power-generation engine installed in a soundproof container. The electric power system greatly improves the energy efficiency of the unit.
Low fuel consumption, uptime and the good reputation of Volvo Penta engines were Sandvik’s main reasons for selecting a Volvo Penta engine for the new UH450E crusher.
Volvo Penta’s TAD1651GE engine offers 505 kVA prime power and 556 kVA standby power at 1,500 rpm. The engine provides low maintenance and fuel-consumption costs for the end users. The engine meets Stage IIIA/Tier 3 emission legislation which provides an environmentally conscious choice.
This project is the latest step in the long-term relationship between Volvo Penta and Sandvik Mining and Construction AB. The two companies signed a cooperation agreement with the goal to enhance the long-term competitiveness of Sandvik’s products.
