The value of these orders amounts to SEK 60 M (USD 5.8 M). The orders involve Toro underground loaders, Rammer breaker boom systems and Roxon materials handling components. The equipment will be delivered during 2002 to Codelco's El Teniente and El Salvador divisions.

Being able to offer a combination of highly productive products and services, Sandvik Mining and Construction is adding value to our customers efforts to further develop and rationalize their mining processes", says Anders Ilstam, President of Sandvik Mining and Construction.
