ARE "THE WORLD'S MOST SOPHISTICATED AND EFFICIENT HIGHWALL MINING SYSTEM"
With over 40 Superior Highwall Mining Systems in successful operations around the world, the Superior method of coal mining can produce coal more cost efficiently and safely than any other method of mining today.
Through the support of the Export-Import Bank of the United States, TTE International, Inc. has introduced three SHM Highwall Mining Systems into Russia. "Without TTE's perseverance, Highwall Miners in Russia would still be only a topic of discussion, not a reality!" - Steve Antoline, President of SHM, LP
- Utilizing a modular design, the SHM System deploys state of the art technology to make dramatic reductions in the environmental impacts of coal mining.
- The phase of 'open pit' strip mining operations using draglines and shovels is reduced or eliminated.
- No human miner is required to labor underground, thus increasing human safety.
- This Superior System is able to produce coal at low cost and with high recovery rates.
ONGOING RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT
Through the collaborative efforts of SHM and TTE, the development of a Superior Highwall Miner capable of mining deep-angle highwall coal seams is underway.
In addition, SHM will now be offering their Highwall Miner with the option of a 50 Hz generator set or 50 Hz direct power. These new features, along with the new SHM Deep-angle Miner will be great assets to the mining community of Europe and Eurasia.
