FEINDEF, the International Defence and Security Exhibition, held from the 3 rd to the 5 th of November in the IFEMA exhibition centre in Madrid, brought together the biggest companies in the military, defence, security, and protection sector. There were helicopters, armoured vehicles, drones, software companies, military equipment, equipment manufacturers, etc.
Despite being known all over the world as a manufacturer of buckets for mining equipment, Spanish company Solintal is also known for the 20,000 to 180,000-litre water and diesel tanks and bowsers it makes for the extraction industry and large earthmoving projects. .
For several years now, it has been the custom for Solintal to organise a year-end gathering with its workers to look back at the recent evolution of the company and look forward to the trends and targets for the coming year. This time, over 150 workers and their guests came to the event, which included a lunch and a party that lasted well into the night.
One of the unmissable events on the global mining circuit is Perumin/Extemin, a congress and fair that takes place every two years in the Peruvian city of Arequipa, where the leading mining gurus and equipment manufacturers meet for five days to exchange information and ideas.
Spanish manufacturer Solintal, a specialist in the manufacture of buckets for the earthmoving and mining sector, continues to deliver buckets to the Japanese company Komatsu, one of the large international machinery manufacturers it makes products for.
As part of its continued efforts to support sport, Solintal has added fencing to the list of activities it sponsors each year, which already includes rhythmic gymnastics, football, and sailing.
The Dutch company Royal Boskalis Westminster NV is known around the world for its dredging and heavy-lift work in the maritime infrastructure sector at an international level.
As is now traditional at mining exhibitions in Seville, Madrid-based company Solintal was there presenting its products at a large stand in the main pavilion of the MMH (Mining and Minerals Hall), a biyearly event that brings together all the players in the European, national and Andalusian mining sector.
In addition to the multiple football and rhythmic gymnastics teams that the company sponsors, Solintal has had a Solintal Sailing Team for several months. The team competes in races and has consistently achieved excellent results in the championships it has competed in.
Even though Solintal did not have a stand at the recent Bauma fair, its products could be seen at the stands of the large earthmoving brands that it works with. Large buckets and a dumper truck bed were just some of the Spanish-made mining equipment on display at the world’s largest machinery fair.
