Barloworld Wins Order for Husab Uranium Project
The order is for the supply, assembly and commissioning of three Cat® 6060FS hydraulic face shovels, three 7495 electric rope shovels, six MD6290 rotary blasthole drill rigs, two MD6640 rotary blasthole drills and two C175 diesel engine motivators. The order has been placed with Barloworld Equipment's Extended Mining Product Range (EMPR) business which was formed to sell and support legacy Bucyrus products rebranded to Cat following Caterpillar's acquisition of Bucyrus in 2011.
This represents the most significant EMPR transaction for Barloworld since its appointment as the dealer for the extended range of mining products in mid-2012. Most of the new machines will be commissioned in 2014.
