Atlantic Coal has ordered more hydraulic excavators for its Stockton Mine in Pennsylvania, US, following delivery of a Komatsu Model PC3000 to the site. The company has now ordered an additional ten items of heavy mining plant from Komatsu´s wholly owned subsidiary Midlantic. Following the purchase of the equipment, Atlantic Coal will be able to continue to increase production at its Stockton Mine, a producing opencast anthracite operation. According to the company, the purchase of the new Komatsu equipment is to be funded through an asset-backed lease purchase agreement, which values $20 million over a period of six years. Four Komatsu Model HD785-7 100t haul trucks will be added to the six trucks that were purchased in 2014 and will be used for hauling overburden.
