Palin Granit invests in wire cutting

In 2018 Palin Granit purchased an Epiroc SpeedROC D30 drill rig. The SpeedROC is used to drill vertical and horizontal pilot holes and designed to increase the use of cutting also at new work stages.

The investment enables faster and more cost efficient production. The increased wire cutting also significantly reduces the amount of dust generated during quarrying.
