In more detail

Full description

Fully-loaded dump trucks are known to burn a lot of diesel, particularly when hauling heavy loads up slopes. This trolley-assist system enables fully-loaded dump trucks to move materials up slopes faster and more efficiently, while significantly reducing their fuel consumption. It does this by reducing the strain on their engines by supplying electricity to the vehicle’s diesel engine from a nearby substation via overhead power lines. This frees up engine capacity and allows the vehicle to generate more pushing power and climb slopes faster. It improves truck speed, mine production capacity and truck maintenance costs. It also ensures that truck emissions and noise are reduced, resulting in better environmental performance and a more sustainable plant.

The challenge

The diesel bills that mines are regularly met with can be eye-watering and dump trucks that routinely haul heavy loads up slopes are responsible for a large proportion of this fuel consumption. This trolley-assist system enables fully-loaded dump trucks to move materials up slopes faster and more efficiently, while significantly reducing their fuel consumption. It does this by reducing the strain on their engines by supplying electricity to the vehicle’s diesel engine from a nearby substation via overhead power lines. This frees up engine capacity and allows the vehicle to generate more pushing power and climb slopes faster. It improves truck speed, mine production capacity and truck maintenance costs. It also ensures that truck emissions and noise are reduced, resulting in better environmental performance and a more sustainable plant.
