For their outstanding achievements above latitude 60º North, Sandvik Mining and Atlas Copco have been presented with the first two 'Northern Lights' industry awards. These inaugural awards were announced last week during the RMG Exploration & Mining Investment Conference in Stockholm.
Sandvik Mining won the Northern Lights Equipment Award for Sustainable Development for its eco-efficient Vibrocone comminution system. Launched in September, the Vibrocone equipment has been described as the "next generation of crushing technology." The award was presented during a dinner at Stockholm's Operakällaren by IntierraRMG's editorial director Chris Hinde, and accepted by the vice president of finance at Sandvik Mining, Gert Sköld. Dr Hinde noted that Vibrocone enables energy savings of up to 30%, which is important for the environment.
