Eurasian Resources Group (ERG) has announced that it has signed a cooperation agreement with Eurasian Machinery LLP, the official provider of Hitachi specialised equipment in Central Asia.
The agreement will see 12 Hitachi EH4000 AC-3 dump trucks and two Hitachi EX5600E hydraulic excavators delivered this year to the Kacharsky open pit iron ore mine, part of ERG’s Sokolov-Sarybai Mining Production Association (SSGPO). This stands as one of the most significant acquisitions of specialised mining equipment in Kazakhstan’s history.
The new equipment, boasting a 220 t lifting capacity, will be used for overburden operations and the transportation of iron ore, and is part of a large scale reconstruction of the entire Kacharsky site, which aims to drive a considerable increase in iron ore production volumes at SSGPO.
The delivery of the specialised equipment will offer remarkable increases in load capacity and provide further advantages when working on a large scale.
In addition to delivering specialised equipment, Eurasian Machinery will perform a wide range of maintenance works, including the construction of service infrastructure and the supply of necessary spare parts over the next 10 years. They will also offer specialised simulator training to ERG’s drivers.
As part of the agreement, which will be is carried out according to the maintenance and repair contract (MARC) principles, ERG will purchase up to 50 units of specialised mining equipment.
