Investment rationale

The products and services of Atlas Copco are designed to provide tangible benefits in terms of productivity, energy efficiency, safety, ergonomics and lower life cycle costs for the customer. The company applies this concept across all of its product lines and divisions.

Atlas Copco is the only manufacturer that offers fully electrified and automated vehicles and machinery for underground mining. 40% to 50% of energy usage of an underground mine is for ventilation of the mine shafts, mostly to remove diesel and other emissions from vehicles and machines. Energy usage can be significantly reduced because of the introduction of electrical vehicles and machinery in mines. And using automated vehicles and machines significantly increases health and safety of mine workers.
