XCMG Broke International Monopoly! Mining Grader GR3505 Successfully Delivered to BHP Billiton 12 Jun 2018
Australia has abundant iron ore resources, 95% of which are located in Western Australia; in Western Australia, 90% of iron ore resources are located in the Pilbara region. BHP Billiton has five world-class iron ore mines in the Pilbara region and produces approximately 275 million tons of iron ore per year. The mines delivered this time are expected to become the world's largest iron ore production region in the next five years.
BHP Billiton, one of the largest mining groups in the world, is the industry's highest standard for operational performance, safety of use, and attendance requirements for mining equipment. In order to better meet BHP Billiton's use of mine graders, XCMG provided BHP Billiton with customized product solutions. XCMG's designers upgraded the GR3505 mining grader according to BHP Billiton's mining equipment technical standards and Australian standards, and the overall performance and service life of the machine have been fully enhanced, reaching the international advanced level.
At the same time, in order to ensure that this group of equipment can better serve the Pilbara mine, XCMG also specially deployed the elite of the service system, systematically trained the operation and maintenance personnel in the mine area and established a “zero distance” after-sales service and spare parts guarantee in the local area to ensure "quickest response speed, the most optimized spare parts network, and the most thoughtful service items" and finally can realize the commitment of XCMG equipment of serving the global users effectively.
The XCMG mining grader was selected by the global mining giant BHP Billiton and successfully entered the Australian market. This means that the “Made in China” mining products have successfully broken the monopoly of internationally renowned brands in the high-end mining equipment industry.
