HiQ lands new contract and ramps up partnership with Epiroc

HiQ lands new contract to develop new software for global mining and infrastructure machinery manufacturer Epiroc.
"We're really excited about this deal. Epiroc is a world-leading manufacturer for the mining industry and like us, innovation is at the top of their agenda. We're very familiar with this kind of software development, it's a core part of our business. But I think our work with Epiroc clearly boosts Sweden's competitive edges for heavy industry," says Lars Stugemo, President and CEO of HiQ.

At the same time, like all industries in the Nordics, the challenge is to increase efficiency both sustainably and safely. New technologies like autonomous vehicles, remote control and battery operation are important to future development. Swedish company Epiroc is a leading global productivity partner to the mining and infrastructure industry, developing drilling rigs, and mining and construction equipment with a strong focus on innovation and digital development.

“We’ve been working with Epiroc for many years, and I’m both happy and proud that we’re now increasing our collaboration further. It’s proof that we deliver high quality,” says Anders Nilsson, Managing Director of HiQ Mälardalen.

Epiroc and HiQ are now increasing their software development collaboration. In addition to previous undertakings, HiQ is delivering two complete development teams to Epiroc’s development site in Örebro. The teams will focus on developing software for embedded systems in mining machines used both above and below ground.

“I’m really pleased about this collaboration. HiQ’s ability to quickly deliver two entire development teams was crucial to this deal and will enable us to maintain our high pace of development. It will help us take advantage of today’s rapid technology development,” says Jörgen Appelgren, VP of Automation & Technology Products at Epiroc.

HiQ & BatteryLoop develop more efficient charging infrastructure

BatteryLoop, a company which gives electric car batteries a second life as energy storage systems, launched an energy storage system in the spring of 2021 which makes it possible, among other things, to build charging infrastructure in places where the electricity grid suffers power shortages. In collaboration with HiQ, BatteryLoop is now developing a digital platform that makes it possible to maximize power in the charging infrastructure. The digital platform enables an estimate as to how long a battery has left to live, thus its economic value in a circular business model.

– It is fantastic that our team is joining BatteryLoop on this journey. Circular business models and sustainability are important to us at HiQ, and it really shows with this project. There is an incredible amount to do to streamline the use of energy in society and this solution is an important contribution to that process, says Sven Ivar Mørch, CEO of HiQ.
