Sleipner transport systems
The innovative Sleipner transport systems manufactured by Finnish company Sleipner Finland Oy are successfully used at leading mining companies around the world. The Sleipner systems of the ”E” series are designed for transporting excavators weighing from 30 to 550 tons, and the “DB” series for transporting tracked vehicles weighing up to 120 tons.
Sleipner systems help to significantly reduce operating costs for tracked vehicles, minimize wear of the undercarriage components, reduce fuel consumption and exhaust emissions, eliminate vibration during traveling, relieve the load from the drive mechanisms, and most importantly increase the productivity of the machinery by returning the travel hours back to production.
The main task of the creator of the systems Sleipner, the operator of tracked vehicles with experience of over 20 years, Ossi Kortesalmi, was to reduce the time of equipment transfer in the preparation of blasting operations and the return of equipment to the open-pit, as well as in transfer of equipment for repair work. Sleipner systems are designed to meet all modern safety standards and have been certified by such mining companies as Karelsky Okatysh, Polyus Gold, Vale, Codelco, Terrafame, Anglo Platinum, Bapi Mining. In 2018, the number of Sleipner systems reached 200 units worldwide.
