SUEK-Kuzbass’s Kotinskaya mine located in the Prokopjevsker district / Kemerovo area in Russia achieved a new world record of 1.4 million tpm with its Eickhoff SL 900 shearer loader.

The record was achieved through a combination of the highly skilled and motivated Kotinskaya staff and Eickhoff´s powerful yellow giant SL 900.

This emphasises the mine’s constant success as current mine data looks promising for more record breaking news to follow soon.
