Atlas Copco, a leading provider of sustainable productivity solutions, has won several recent orders from Hindustan Zinc in India for equipment that will make the mining company’s operations take a leap forward in efficiency and become more digitalized.

Hindustan Zinc, a long-time customer of Atlas Copco, is significantly increasing its underground mining output. As part of this shift, Hindustan Zinc is automating much of its operations, increasing productivity and safety. The recently placed orders include drilling rigs, loaders, haulers and exploration equipment which will be used in five of its mines in northwestern India. The orders total MEUR 24 (MSEK 230) and were received in the first and second quarters of 2017.

“We are proud to play an important role in Hindustan Zinc’s moves toward highly effective, partly automated mining,” said Helena Hedblom, President of Atlas Copco’s Mining and Rock Excavation Technique business area. “Atlas Copco is on the cutting edge of modern mining equipment, helping customers to boost productivity, energy savings and operator safety.”

Automation and other high-technology features of the equipment are enabled through the common Rig Control System (RCS) platform. Most of the machines are equipped with the telematics solution CERTIQ, which gathers, compares and communicates equipment information and performance.

The equipment supplied will also be covered by a separate comprehensive agreement for service and support for a period of five years from date of commissioning.

Hindustan Zinc, a Vedanta company, is India's only and the world-leading integrated zinc-lead-silver producer.
