PRESS RELEASE: By analysing its current global installed plant base, Sandvik said it has been able to gain valuable insights into the core needs of its customers when it comes to plant solutions for mines and quarries.
Based on the results of this analysis, the manufacturer has developed three new plant solutions.
FastPlant ia a pre-defined plant solution with a fast delivery time of just 12 weeks. Sandvik FastPlants are based on the concept of giving customers the plant that they need, without unnecessary hurdles or hassle. Based on the pre-definition, the plant can be chosen, quoted and ordered in just one meeting.
Sandvik SmartPlants are a modular approach to the building of plants. Customers can select the SmartStations that meet their crushing and screening needs and place them together to create their plant. SmartPlants are supplied automation-ready and can be upgraded and expanded to accommodate the customer's evolving requirements.
The CustomPlant solution is based on a long-term plant development relationship, based on an early contractor involvement (ECI) agreement to create the optimal plant for the customer's needs.
In addition, Sandvik 365 is the lifecycle support solution that can be added to every Sandvik plant solution to reduce commissioning time and increase uptime, providing services and support throughout the lifetime of the plant.
"We've learned a lot about the needs of our customers through this process and have created what we feel is the optimal solution for their wide and varied needs," said Pär Stigmer, director, Sandvik Plant Solutions. "Sandvik Plant Solutions provides customers with a more compelling value proposition for the initial plant purchase - and also for the entire lifecycle support of their new plant."
