Investment in modern highly mechanised low-emission mining fleet is part of Ellatzite-Med’s efforts to minimize environmental impact. The new Hitachi EX2600E-6 LD excavator is tailored to operate under the specific conditions in Ellatzite mine. It is cost-efficient, CO2 emission-free and does not use petrol. All controls in the cab are within easy reach, which leads to greater operating efficiency. The excavator has a 15 m3 loading bucket and 14 m horizontal outreach. Furthermore, the company has invested in purchasing other heavy electric equipment ˗ mostly excavators, mining drill rigs, and dump trucks. In 2022, Ellatzite-Med purchased new machinery in the Mine Complex: a bulldozer, 3 mining drill rigs, 6 dump trucks with a diesel engine-generator and electric motors, as well as other types of machines with active exhaust gas regeneration and AdBlue systems.
