Reducing fuel usage and generating fewer greenhouse gas emissions are two of the most prominent issues in the mining industry today and Finning Caterpillar is focused on doing our part to help you address this challenge.

We continue to invest in research and development aimed at products that generate fewer direct emissions. We also recognize that the more efficiently you operate, the less fuel you burn. So we’re increasing our investment in high-efficiency energy conversion and electrification, expanding the use of alternative fuels, maximizing the efficiency of power systems, and looking for new ways to help you do more with less.

Working together, we can access the resources on which the world depends while protecting the earth we share and the air we breathe.

Emissions Reductions.


We’re proud to say that we have the industry’s broadest line of machines that meet this requirement to reduce NOx and Particulate Matter and leading to cleaner air. By planning ahead, we were able to minimize design changes and maintain the reliability and performance our customers demand from their products. Every Tier 4 / Stage V engine is equipped with a combination of proven electronic, fuel, air and aftertreatment components, based on engine size, application and the geographic location in which it will work.

Solar and Storage.

The Cat Microgrid system, which contains both photovoltaic solar modules and energy storage, provides increased energy efficiency with no reliance on the grid and efficient power that can be produced where and when it's needed without transmission lines and transformer losses. Microgrid infrastructure projects reduce overall emissions through microgrid controls of solar and storage devices.


What if you could have the class-leading payload and superior productivity of the proven Cat® R1700 underground loader without the engine heat or exhaust emissions? You can. 

Introducing the R1700 XE battery electric LHD — a high productivity, zero-emission loader with the industry’s only onboard battery. It charges safely and quickly—in less than 20 minutes when paired with two of the durable and mobile Cat MEC500 chargers. It features Autodig for optimized loading and is factory-ready for autonomous operation. And it delivers the powerful performance, maximum uptime and low operating costs you demand.


Our underground mining team relies on close collaboration with our customers to develop equipment, and support solutions that are customized for your application. We’re focused on helping you mine safely and productively today. And we have an eye on the future, with new products, new ways of mining, and new ways to get more out of game-changers like technology and automation.



No matter what your challenge is, optimizing your performance even a little bit can make a huge impact to your bottom line, delivering an essential competitive advantage to your business. Our platforms combine nearly 90 years of Finning expertise with the latest technology meaning we can bring solutions to a wide array of challenges, simple or complex.
