Epiroc continue on emission-compliance journey

Stage V compliant engine

Company installing Tier 4 Final/Stage V compliant engines on number of surface drill rigs produced in the EU

EPIROC have announced that in order to be in compliance with the latest emission regulations, the company is now replacing the engines on a number of surface drill rigs produced in the European Union.

The new engines comply with the Tier 4 Final/Stage V emission regulations, which means that the affected drill rigs (see list below) will have double certifications and can be sold both in the EU and in North America. All affected drill rigs can still be ordered with a Tier 3 engine.

The Tier 4 Final/Stage V requirement only applies to rigs sold in EU countries, whilst Tier 4 Final engines are required in the US, Canada, Japan and Korea.

The affected drill rig models are as follows:

  • SpeedROC 1F
  • FlexiROC T15 R, FlexiROC T20 R, FlexiROC T25 R Construction Edition, FlexiROC T30 R Construction Edition, FlexiROC T30 R Quarry Edition, FlexiROC T35 R, FlexiROC T40 R, FlexiROC T35, FlexiROC T40, FlexiROC T45, FlexiROC D50, FlexiROC D55, FlexiROC D60 and FlexiROC D65.
  • SmartROC T35, SmartROC T40, SmartROC T45, SmartROC C50, SmartROC D50, SmartROC D55, SmartROC D60, SmartROC D65 and SmartROC CL.

Epiroc say the engine change has already been completed for a number of models and the process will continue throughout 2019 to be finalized in early 2020.
