Epiroc’s Scooptram ST14 SG sets new standards for automated, zero-emission underground loaders

October 11, 2023

The Scooptram ST14 SG is the latest iteration of Epiroc’s highly successful battery-electric 14-tonne underground loader. By fusing zero-emission technology with advanced automation capabilities, Scooptram ST14 SG makes operations safer, smarter and more productive. Powered by connected, self-sustained batteries that provide unparalleled autonomy - and the flexibility of opportunity charging anywhere in the mine.

“With its high-energy battery and the impressive drivetrain, Scooptram ST14 SG has more than enough power to clean a mine development tunnel on one battery charge” says Erik Gert, Global Product Manager – Scooptram at Epiroc’s Underground division.

 

Scooptram ST14 SG allows for both on-board and off-board charging, featuring a self-sustained battery with dedicated cooling system. State of charge and battery health can be monitored remotely in real-time, and opportunity charging enables customers to charge when the opportunity arises.

 

“The flexibility of opportunity charging can help boost productivity and machine utilization. For example, an idle loader can be charged while waiting for a truck to return, or during a shift change” says Erik Gert, Global Product Manager – Scooptram at Epiroc’s Underground division.

The Scooptram ST14 SG is designed with automation in mind and comes equipped with Epiroc’s new generation of market-leading sensor towers, improving system uptime by 10% compared to the previous model.

 

“Some of the largest mines around the world, both stoping and caving operations, can benefit from Scooptram ST14 SG in combination with Epiroc’s Deep Automation solutions. This means customers can safely continue their operations during blasting and while venting blast fumes, allowing them to gain an extra hour of productive load and haul per shift” says Anton Ronquist, Global Product Manager 6th Sense at Epiroc’s Underground division.

 

The Scooptram ST14 SG is part of Epiroc’s Smart and Green series (SG), featuring battery-electric driveline and Epiroc’s Rig Control System (RCS). Several automated loaders have already been sold and will shortly be commissioned at customer sites.
