Solution

Electric fleets for cleaner air in deep mines

Description

These fully electrified trucks bring ore from ultra-deep mines to the surface, reducing the need for often exorbitant ventilation costs. The trucks are powered by batteries connected to four electrical engines, instead of traditional fuel combustion engines. Traction is distributed to both truck axes simultaneously for reliable movement within the mine. An emergency traction system also ensures the vehicle can move even if an engine fails. As well as reducing ventilation requirements and costs, using fully electrified trucks means cleaner air as well as reduced noise and heat in the mine.
