Sustainable mining solutions

Mining is essential for the world’s energy transition and our technologies help enable the sustainable mine of the future. By utilizing the competence of our people, we are driving development and adoption of mining and excavation solutions for automation, digitalization and electrification, all of which increase productivity and profitability and improve safety and sustainability for our customers.

The net-zero mine of the future will be electrified and powered by renewable energy. It will be connected, providing real-time data and intelligence to enable optimization. We believe that this future is necessary to ensure access to sustainably mined materials for the transition to a low-carbon and sustainable world. And it’s happening now. Our highly skilled people will continue to collaborate with our customers to take steps to create the mine of the future, developing forward-thinking solutions for underground mining as well as for surface drilling and tunneling.

Future-proof technologies

We develop and refine technologies that help enable the sustainable mine of the future, an operation that is fully automated and electrified and harnesses the power of digitalization.
