The acquisition of GIA Industri AB’s underground business opens up a number of new markets for Atlas Copco’s underground mining and tunneling products division, including electric haul trucks, locomotives and rail-mounted shuttle car systems, charging and service trucks, Häggloader continuous loaders, and complete ventilation systems.


Atlas Copco also offers GIA’s Kiruna Electric haulage truck. The Kiruna is the only electric truck in the world capable of hauling 35 to 50 tons. The Kiruna Electric 635ED is powered by an electric motor, and is capable of travelling at 11 mph up a 15-degree ramp while fully loaded.
