Matt Cahir, CEO of MEVCO, said: 

“The Rivian R1T is widely acclaimed for its on and off-road capabilities, and its robust design and adaptability make it the ideal candidate to meet the many challenges mining presents. The integration of Rivian’s technology with MEVCO’s proven track record in mining-specific electric vehicles is poised to yield a fleet that exceeds the requirements of the most demanding operators.

The shift to electric solutions extends beyond environmental and financial advantages. It is about fostering a safer, healthier environment for mine operators, particularly in subterranean settings where the elimination of tailpipe emissions is paramount. The Rivian R1T, in terms of safety and off-road capabilities, stands unparalleled.

We have already seen strong support for the Rivian product, as well as the infrastructure MEVCO is building to support the rollout.”

Green, clean and pristine

The Rivian R1T stands alone as the sole pickup truck in the United States, electric or conventional, to hold the prestigious Top Safety Pick+ award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS).

Dagan Mishoulam, Rivian’s VP of Strategy, said:

“Our fleet offering is better known for our commercial vans, so its great to see our R1 vehicles being incorporated into MEVCO’s fleet. We’re delighted they are electrifying  their fleet with us, and we’re excited to help them reduce tailpipe emissions.”

With MEVCO customising the Rivian R1T to meet the demanding requirements of mining operations, both on the surface and underground, the future looks promising for the industry. By providing robust support in charging infrastructure, maintenance, and workflow optimisation, MEVCO is paving the way for a sustainable and efficient mining landscape. This partnership not only signifies progress but also creates a solid foundation for the evolving needs of modern mining, fostering a cleaner and more innovative approach to the industry’s future.
