Engine supplier Volvo Penta is developing its partnership with Sandvik
Volvo Penta and Sandvik are co-operating on engine supply.
Under the terms of the deal, Volvo Penta and Sandvik Mining and Construction have an agreement intended to boost the long-term competitiveness of Sandvik products.
With rapid advances in technology and emission legislation, not only the choice of technology but also the choice of engine supplier has become an important issue for equipment manufacturers for the construction industry.
Sandvik has introduced Volvo Penta engines in several models from its product lines for crushers, drilling rigs, loaders and haulers.
Installing after-treatment systems has proven to be a major issue for many equipment builders in the US and the EU but for Sandvik the process is now simplified.
