Papa Bravo has moved operations to a new 34,000 sq ft facility to manufacture their electric mining vehicles. Papa Bravo initially launched in October 2011 with the development of the PapaBravo Innovation’s (PBI) electric utility vehicles. These vehicles have been used for underground mining companies wishing to decrease diesel particulate matter (DPM) and ventilation costs in their underground environment.PBI’s release of two new product lines have resulted in rapid growth driving the expansion. The new 34,000 square foot facility in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan will become home to PapaBravo’s state of the art electric vehicle manufacturing and research and development divisions.The two new product lines include a 4 wheel drive, ½ ton truck suitable for both shaft and ramp access mines and a larger, heavy hauling platform available up to 25 ton GVW that covers a wide range of specialty applications. The ½ ton electric vehicle can be equipped with an open air cab or can be converted to an enclosed cab with heating and cooling make this vehicle suitable for nearly any underground environment. The 2nd product expansion is geared to replace large, heavy diesel equipment underground in all mines globally. With the ability to mix and match, this product can be utilized from a 5ton to a 25 ton GVW and can be configured for almost any purpose underground.
