Energy regeneration and the efficient drivetrain configuration will ensure low energy consumption and extend driving range. With the electric drive, Battery mine trucks will outperform diesel equivalents, especially on grade.
Electric mining trucks are optimized for productivity in many ways. The drivetrain has been optimized to reduce losses and reduce the number of components. One high power electrical motor is connected to each axel. The electrical drivetrain provides unheard of speed on grades, both up and down the ramp. Hydraulic functions are powered from a separate auxiliary motor that delivers hydraulic power on-demand. Extended battery autonomy is achieved through energy regeneration and high energy density battery design.
Except for new legislations, rules and standards, the reasons for going electric are many. Health and safety improvements are also obvious with less particulate matters and diesel fumes in the mines. In a bigger picture the environmental aspects with global warming is reason enough.
We are leading the change towards sustainability in mining through battery electric,
zero-emission equipment. This contributes to a sustainable future and a smaller environmental
footprint. It is a power change that changes everything.
