Electrifying the future

The benefits with electrification in mining are almost too good to be true. It’s positive for workers´ health and reduces greenhouse gas emissions. The machines are more productive and more powerful. And there is a strong business case already now.

The momentum for mining electrification rides on a technology development that is set to accelerate rapidly, enabling substantial benefits for the industry.

“In a couple of years electric equipment will be part of pretty much every contract,” says Henrik Ager, President of Sandvik Mining and Rock Solutions.

Reaching the full potential of mining electrification will require rethinking the fundamentals of mine equipment design.


Meet Sandvik podcast: Brian Huff has built his entire career around electrification. Since 27 years he has worked on electric solutions for cars, boats, and now for mining vehicles.
