Sumitomo Excavator SH350LHD-6 and SH490LHD-6 for Coal Mining Works in Kalimantan

Friday July 21, 2023

Coal is the most important fuel for power generation and an essential fuel for the production of steel and cement. Even though the use of coal causes pollution due to its high proportion of carbon waste, other resources that are low in carbon waste are prone to price fluctuations on the world market. Thus many industries keep using coal as one of their resources.

Indonesia itself is one of the world’s largest producers and exporters of coal. Indonesia’s coal reserves are estimated to last about 83 years if current production rates are maintained, according to the Indonesian Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources.

There are many small coal reserves in Sumatra, Java, Kalimantan, Sulawesi and Papua, but three of the largest coal reserves in Indonesia are South Sumatra, South Kalimantan and East Kalimantan. Indonesia has the main destination countries for coal exports, namely China, India, Japan and South Korea.

Sumitomo machinery plays a big part in the development of the coal mining work in Kalimantan. Excavator Sumitomo SH350LHD-6 and SH490LHD-6 are being used in the process. The use of both excavators are suitable for use in rough terrain like coal mining as well as to increase productivity.
