Plant and Fleet Solutions For the Mining Sector with Engine Remanufacturing

Posted on


Worldwide, there is a growing demand from Mining companies who require their plant and fleets to be 'efficiently' maintained for optimum output and maximum profit. 

Mining Engine RemanufacturingRather than replacing units like the popular Caterpillar® and Cummins® engines in mining plant and fleets, remanufacturing is now proven to be the very best solution. Rather than wasteful engine replacement practices, Mining companies are now starting to choose "remanufacturing" over "purchasing new". This is no surprise given that engine remanufacturing leads to massive financial savings and is a completely environmentally sensible way to go about business. "Due to global market trends it makes much more sense to remanufacture current engine stocks" says Ron Bell, CEO at Bells Caterpillar and Cummins Engine Remanufacturers. Ron, an Engine Remanufacturing Engineer states "why throw away a perfectly good engine that has reached its allocated hours, surely, in accordance with sound Environmental management practices under ISO 14001, the best option for all Mining Operators is to remanufacture these engines to OEM standards for a "second life"". "Engine remanufacturing will save most Mining organisations, and their Contractors, hundreds of thousands of dollars, even millions, each and every year" says Ron.

Ron Bell explains that remanufacturing CAT® and Cummins® engines saves miners so much as opposed to purchasing new units. The end result being a super high-quality remanufactured engine to Manufacturer's OEM specifications and quality parts for a fraction of the price of buying new engines. "These remanufactured engines are as good as new" says Ron.
