The order is valued at approximately US$17 million (SEK 170 million) and was booked in 1Q22 and 2Q22, whereof approximately US$ 14 million (SEK 140 million) was booked in 2Q22.

“Epiroc and Fresnillo go back many years as productive partners, and we look forward to continue supporting their work to optimise productivity and sustainability in their operations,” said Helena Hedblom, Epiroc’s President and CEO.

The equipment ordered, manufactured in Örebro, Sweden, includes Boomer face drilling rigs, Boltec and Cabletec rock reinforcement rigs, Simba production drilling rigs, Scooptram loaders, and Minetruck haulers. Automation features include teleremote operations, Epiroc’s Rig Control System and Advanced Boom Control (ABC) Total, which enables drilling a sequence of holes (full round) automatically. The units will also be equipped with Epiroc’s telematics system, which allows for intelligent monitoring of machine performance and productivity in real time.
