R2900G Rebuild and Commission to African Mine

Project Details

One of the largest gold producers in Africa required an additional loader for one if its combined open pit and underground mine.

The company commissioned EMS Group to deliver a rebuilt Caterpillar R2900G to its operation in Tanzania.

EMS Group delivered an R2900G rebuild to the client’s specifications within a 12-week turnaround.

This included meeting a fit-for-purpose which required installing a secondary steering to the machine, adding new bars, and fitting an RCT remote system.

Once completed, EMS Group dismantled the loader into three pieces to meet Tanzania’s 30-tonne load size restrictions, loaded it onto a truck and transported it to a port in Sydney where it was transferred to a shipping container bound for Africa.

EMS Group will send two diesel fitters to Tanzania to complete the reassembly and commission the handover.
