BelAZ to start shipping 450-tonne trucks to Russia’s Kemerovo Oblast this year

26.11.2013 19:44

ZHODINO, 26 November (BelTA) – The first mine dump truck with the carrying capacity of 450 tonnes will be supplied by the Belarusian automobile engineering company OAO BelAZ to Kemerovo Oblast, Russia as early as 2013. The information was released by Oleg Stepuk, Deputy Director General of the company, Chief Engineer, on 26 November, BelTA has learned.

The vehicle is quite expensive, therefore the 450-tonne trucks will be made only to orders, said the executive. “Markets will be analyzed as well as consumers and only then this type of products will be made,” he said.

The first 450-tonne vehicle and another two, which are being assembled, have already found their buyer — ZAO Siberian Business Union (Kemerovo). According to preliminary reports, the trucks will be used at the quarry Chernigovets, however, the buyer has yet to decide on the more precise use of the Belarusian vehicles in the region.

“The first dump truck will be shipped this year and another two will be shipped in 2014 as soon as they are assembled. I think we will be able to do that by mid-2014,” said Oleg Stepuk.

Designed by OAO Belarusian Autoworks (BelAZ trademark), the mine dump truck BelAZ 75710 can carry 450 tonnes and is the world’s largest truck. The model was first unveiled at BelAZ’s testing range in 2013. The vehicle is designed to transport mined rock in deep open pits along temporary roads in various climatic conditions with the air temperature varying from minus 50C to plus 50C.

OAO BelAZ is the management company of BelAZ Holding. The industrial group is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of super heavy mine dump trucks (from 30 tonnes to 450 tonnes). The company’s share of the international market is about 25%. BelAZ also offers vehicles for underground operations, bulldozers, loaders, and aircraft tow trucks. In 2012 the company turned out about 2,000 vehicles, including over 1,500 mine dump trucks, earning over $1 billion. BelAZ products are exported to over 30 countries across the globe, including Russia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, India, China, Australia and other major mining countries.
