Volvo CE launches new excavator for Indian mining sector

Volvo Construction Equipment has launched 75-tonne class excavator into the Indian market at an event held in company’s customer centre, Bengaluru.
The new EC750D excavator is expected to redefine mining operations in India and bring unprecedented levels of productivity to the job site, states Dimitrov Krishnan, Vice President of Volvo CE India. “With the 75-tonne class excavator, miners will be able to load their trucks quicker thereby enhancing production and optimising fleet utilisation,” he adds.
With the Indian government targeting annual coal production of 1 billion tonnes by 2020, pressure is building on mining operators to improve both their productivity and output. According to Dimitrov EC750D can be a perfect solution to meet this demand. “The EC750D is the largest excavator ever produced by Volvo CE and it will sit above our flagship model, the EC480D. The EC480D is currently the most popular machine in its class and we expect the EC750D to enjoy similar success and establish itself as the premier heavy-duty excavator in this country,” says Dimitrov while handing over the keys of newly launched excavators to B Rohit Reddy, Director of BGR. The first six EC750D machines in India have been delivered to BGR Mining and Infrastructure Pvt Ltd, one of the largest private mining contractors in India.
The driving force behind the new heavy-duty excavator is the powerful Volvo D16 Tier 3 engine, which has been significantly updated. It delivers increased horsepower and fuel efficiency and also has a robust design to ensure a low total cost of ownership. In India Volvo CE is backing the engine with 10,000-hour warranty as standard.
