At MINExpo, Scania will showcase its wide range of products and solutions tailored for mining operations. Profitability and sustainability are at the core of the company’s offerings.
Focusing on total operating economy for mining operators, Scania will display a comprehensive range of products and services. “For mining enthusiasts like us, MINExpo is a very exciting event,” says Björn Winblad, Head of Scania Mining. “It’s particularly exciting for Scania because I believe our offerings could have a huge positive impact on our mining customers’ bottom line.”
Scania is particularly looking forward to outlining Scania Site Optimization to potential customers. This constitutes a framework of tools and methods designed to support mining operators in improving their total operating economy. The collection and analysis of vehicle and operational data can help mining operators decide on services and products, which can increase their efficiency and thus improve their
profitability. At the fair, Scania Site Optimization will be showcased in a control tower container.
Also on display at the Scania stand will be a range of fuel-efficient engines for use in equipment, such as screening devices, stone crushers and gensets. Engines on display include the Tier 4 Final 13- and 16-L Industrial engines, an SCR unit to meet Tier 4 Final, and a 9-L power generator with mounted cooler.
Scania’s modular system allows for tailoring equipment to any application, including mining operations, using a limited number of well-proven components. This, in turn, gives swift and reliable access to parts and services.
“We have expertise from other industries such as long haulage transport and bus transport, and can bring that to bear in the mining industry. Our modular approach means that the services already exist to fill the briefcase with,” Winblad says.
Scania’s stand at MINExpo also features a mobile workshop that could be put into operation at any site and gives access to professional service also in remote areas. The mobile workshop is a flexible alternative to a permanent workshop. It is included in a standard container with necessary equipment such as tools and compressors attached to it.
Though not being showcased at the fair, Scania also has two other exciting areas of work in the pipeline. Autonomous transport solutions and the greater earning ability of Scania’s new performance steps for heavier vehicle payloads are just two further signs of the company’s ongoing commitment to profitability and sustainability.
