Indian engineering firm Hindustan Dorr-Oliver Ltd has entered the Canadian market with its UK subsidiary DavyMarkham securing an order from Hudson Bay Mining Inc (HBMI), Canada. The order, worth about £8.3 million, is for the supply of mining hoists to HBMI's new copper-zinc mine at Manitoba, Canada.
Hindustan Dorr-Oliver will design, manufacture and supply complete three mining hoists of diameter range 8'-16' and the order will be executed by the year-end, the company said in a filing with the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE).
The mining contract will see the design, manufacture and installation of one of the largest and deepest mine hoists in North America.
Hindustan Dorr-Oliver Ltd acquired Sheffield, UK-based heavy engineering firm DavyMarkham in March this year.
