Atlas Copco has inaugurated its distribution and training centre at Bijaynagar in Rajasthan. This dedicated facility for Hindustan Zinc Ltd (HZL) was inaugurated jointly by Markku Terasvasara, President, Atlas Copco Mining and Rock Excavation Service division, David Shellhammer, President, Atlas Copco Underground Rock Excavation division, and Laxman Singh Shekhawat, VP and Unit Head, HZL. HZL has ordered a large fleet of machines from Atlas Copco for its existing and new underground mines.
When HZL decided to expand its operations and induct new mining equipment, Atlas Copco agreed to provide 24x7 support for these machines. This implies that Atlas Copco will maintain the machines which HZL operates, a support which will cover 25,000 hours of operations or five years. This facility has a well-stocked distribution centre for parts and consumables manned professionally round the clock.
