Jordan’s mining sector is considered the cornerstone to the Jordanian economy. It plays a vital role in growth of many other important sectors in the economy and contributes to the Jordan’s standard of living. The mining industry in Jordan is dominated by the production of phosphate, potash, building and decoration stones, glass sand and other nonmetallic resources. Recently, Jordan has been ranked as the sixth largest producer and the second largest exporter of phosphate, the fourth largest producer and the second largest exporter of potash, and has the 5th largest oilshale reserves in the world.

Major contractors are purchasing used equipment from the different areas in the world and use them to build mines. Epiroc Middle East decided to use this potential opportunity to grow aftermarket business in the country and to support local contractors with our modern service solutions even for these old machines.

From February 2018 Epiroc Team focused on RigScan auditing of the ADS equipment in Jordan. 7 machines have been audited so far bringing good business for MRS and showing Epiroc approach on used equipment as a company supporting the machines even after 10 to 15 years after production.

Mr. Carl MccCallum, Project Director of BCM Al Own, expects RigScan to give good value for his company on order to estimate the investments in the machines in order to get reasonable availability and lower costs. Effective stock management is also one of the values he sees in RigScan.
