After extensive development work and thorough field testing, Sandvik prepares to launch its first Stage V compliant underground loaders for hard rock mining applications. Achieved with more than 10,000 hours of LHD testing underground, on multiple customer sites in Europe, and with millions of hours of on-highway experience from Volvo, the new technology meets customer expectations, equipment performance requirements and the most stringent emission regulations valid at the moment. The base engine and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) purifier are proven Volvo technology, enhanced now with a ceramic Diesel Particle Filter (DPF).
