It’s popping up everywhere on the scene. You read about it in the trade magazines, you see it on the marketing brochures and you read it on the side of the equipment at the trade shows. Electric (E) has hit the mining scene in full force. With technology advancing at a higher rate day by day the mining industry can now dig deeper than years before but with that comes a cost with ventilation and fuel for diesel machines. With most major brands in the Mining Industry now turning to the “E” the costs are lowered for the overall long term duration of the mining projects, not to mention they run cooler, quieter and cleaner.
Below is the Sandvik LH514E that I recently photographed. I was impressed with the maneuverability of the tethered tram in close quarters while at the same time I was able to communicate with my assistants while it was in production. The images I created on the shoot will be used for marketing materials and promotional products as the Iphone “snapshots” don’t belong in the realm of Professional photography.
