Refurbished shovel moving to Australian coal mine

Mining Engineering , 2002, Vol. 54, No. 9, pp. 17-17

P&H MinePro Services Australasia plans to refurbish one of its 2800XPA shovels and put it back into use at an Australian coal mine. The company purchased the shovel from Hamersley Iron’s Tom Price Mine. The 2800XPA will be re-engineered, re-powered and updated with the latest technology. The “new” machine will then be relocated to MIM Holding’s Oakey Creek coking coal mine in Queensland, Australia, where it will start a new life.
