CONSOL Energy Inc., the largest producer of coal from underground mines in North America, has placed orders for Cat® longwall equipment including more than 1,100 roof supports and totaling nearly $300 million US. In addition to roof supports, the four northern Appalachia mines—Bailey, Bailey Mine Extension (BMX), Robinson Run and Shoemaker—will get two armored face conveyors, a shearer and three shield haulers. CONSOL also is equipping all four longwall systems with the Cat PMC®-R electro-hydraulic control system for advanced automation and Cat Detect Personnel, a personnel proximity detection system designed to enhance the safety of miners working around longwall systems. Delivery of equipment will be completed in 2013.
