Solution

Trolley assist system for climbing routes

Description

Designed to help fully loaded dump trucks move materials up slopes without straining their engines, this trolley-assist system allows vehicles to move faster while consuming less fuel. The system works by supplying electricity to the vehicle’s diesel engine from a nearby substation via overhead power lines. This frees up engine capacity so the vehicle can generate more pushing power and climb slopes faster. This improves truck speed, mine production capacity and truck maintenance costs at the same time. As an additional benefit, truck emissions and noise are reduced, resulting in better environmental performance.
