Productivity and sustainability partner for the mining and construction industries Epiroc has won a SKr280-million order from Eti Bakir, Türkiye’s largest mining company, for underground mining equipment that will be used at a new copper mine.
Eti Bakir is a long-time customer of Epiroc and has ordered a fleet of face drilling rigs, production drilling rigs, mine trucks and loaders. The machines will primarily be used at a new copper mine currently under development near the city of Elazig.
Some of the ordered units will also be used at other existing Eti Bakir sites to strengthen operations there.
The drilling rigs will come equipped with Epiroc’s Advanced Boom Control solution ABC Total, enabling the operator to drill a sequence of holes automatically and to control more than one boom simultaneously.
Delivery is expected to begin in the first half of 2024.
