“We are happy about this cooperation with Railcare as it is a natural step for Epiroc to collaborate around the technology that we have developed for our underground equipment,” said Helena Hedblom, Epiroc’s Senior Executive Vice President Mining & Infrastructure. “Cooperating with forward-thinking companies around the battery technology is important to drive volume and reduce costs. This will speed up the electrification process.”
“We continue to have a high level on our innovations and we are proud of the result of our cooperation with Epiroc,” said Daniel Öholm, Railcare’s CEO. “We will use their scalable platform for battery technology when we launch our first electric MPV. Many of our missions are for underground work, with high demands on safety, work environment and efficiency.”
Railcare is planning to make available its first machines using Epiroc’s battery technology later this year. To learn more about Railcare, please see its website (mainly in Swedish).
