During July 2017, AO SUEK-Kuzbass’s Yalevskovo (former Kotinskaya) mine located in the Kemerovo area reported another new world record of 1.567 million t of raw coal mined from a single face with its Eickhoff SL 900 shearer loader.

The Eickhoff SL 900 has high flexibility in varying seam thicknesses ranging from 2.4 to 6 meter, as well as having an installed power of more than 2500 kW. This Eickhoff shearer loader covers a wide spectrum of cutting ranges while the power reserves provide enormous potential for increased production rates – as highly skilled and motivated SUEK staff prove continuously.

Since its foundation in 1864, Eickhoff has been specialised in underground coal mining equipment. Today, Eickhoff is a successful German based global supplier of longwall shearers and continuous miners, providing the worldwide coal community with more than 50 machines every year.
