Yuzhny Kuzbass Launches New Dump Trucks
Mechel’s coal company Yuzhny Kuzbass has launched 4 BelAZ mining dump trucks with a carrying capacity of 220 tons. Thanks to the new technology, the company plans to increase stripping and production volumes by the end of the year. The equipment is equipped with reliable motors with an electronic control system, a centralized lubrication system and a coolant heater for smooth operation in winter. The cars use the online dispatching system implemented in Yuzhny Kuzbass, which allows increasing the safety and efficiency of labor, keeping records of production processes.
In the near future, five more dump trucks will be put into operation: two with a carrying capacity of 130 tons for the transportation of overburden and three coal carriers BelAZ-75138, as well as 13 Scania vehicles. The commissioning of additional equipment will increase labor productivity
