Epiroc continues emission compliance journey

June 19, 2019

At Epiroc, we always keep a focus on sustainability in all parts of our operations and our products. In order to be compliant with the latest emission regulations we are now replacing the engines on a number of surface drill rigs produced in the EU.

The new engines complies with the Tier 4 Final/Stage V emission regulations. This means that the affected drill rigs (see below) will have double certifications and can be sold both in the EU and in North America. All affected drill rigs can still be ordered with a Tier 3 engine.

The Tier 4 Final/Stage V requirement only applies to EU countries. Tier 4 Final engines are required in USA, Canada, Japan and Korea.

Affected drill rigs:
SpeedROC 1F, FlexiROC T15 R, FlexiROC T20 R, FlexiROC T25 R Construction Edition, FlexiROC T30 R Construction Edition, FlexiROC T30 R Quarry Edition, FlexiROC T35 R, FlexiROC T40 R, FlexiROC T35, FlexiROC T40, FlexiROC T45, FlexiROC D50, FlexiROC D55, FlexiROC D60 and FlexiROC D65.

SmartROC T35, SmartROC T40, SmartROC T45, SmartROC C50, SmartROC D50, SmartROC D55, SmartROC D60, SmartROC D65 and SmartROC CL.

The engine change have already been completed for a number of drill rig models and the process will continue throughout 2019 to be finalized early 2020.
