Etteplan supports Epiroc efforts to electrify mining

In a strategic partnership project that started in 2021. Etteplan is supporting Epiroc in redesigning its Minetruck MT42 Battery into an electric trolley system.

A multitude of Etteplan’s offices in Finland and Sweden provide crucial resources and expertise in the development and helps to secure a timely progress of the project.

The new battery-electric Minetruck MT42 trolley will still be equipped with a battery, and in addition it will be recharged on the fly via an overhead catenary wire through a pantograph, similar to a trolleybus.  

“Globally, electrification of equipment is a major trend in mining, where most vehicles are currently powered by diesel engines. Therefore, the industry needs new types of competences and skill-sets that we are ready to cater for. Jointly developed procedures together with major manufacturers such as Epiroc ensures that we address strategically important electrification challenges in a competitive way”, says Anders Svensson, Director, Service Solutions at Etteplan’s Engineering Solutions, in a press release.

In this project, Etteplan will provide technical expertise in for battery technology, machine electrification, electrical design, system requirements and safety risk assessment.
