MINSK, 1 April (BelTA) – The Belarusian automobile engineering company BelAZ has shipped three haul trucks to Armenia, the company’s press service told BelTA.

The haul trucks BelAZ-75585 with the carrying capacity of 90 tonnes will be used at the Sotksky mine of the GeoProMining Gold company in Armenia. They will not be the first Belarusian haul trucks the mine will use. The mine already uses 130-tonne BelAZ trucks with high effectiveness. When new vehicles became necessary, the Armenian company chose Belarusian trucks thanks to the optimal value for money they represent.

One of the three new BelAZ trucks is being tuned and will soon be commissioned. The two other trucks will be commissioned by the end of April. The trucks are being assembled by BelAZ representatives.

The haul truck BelAZ-75585 is powered by a diesel engine with the output of up to 1,200hp. New high-tensile steel is used to improve the reliability of the primary bearing members. Cast components are used to make the nodes that experience the highest tensions. Practice indicates that BelAZ trucks with this type of drive gear fully meet requirements of the most exacting clients. Such BelAZ trucks are used by the Russian companies Rusal, Stroyservis, and Mechel.

The Sotksky gold mine is Armenia’s largest gold deposit, with its reserves estimated in excess of 120 tonnes.

The public joint-stock company (OAO) BelAZ is the managing company of the holding company BelAZ. BelAZ is the world's leading manufacturer of haul trucks and transport equipment for mining industry and civil engineering industry. BelAZ accounts for some 30% of the world market of haul trucks with an extremely large carrying capacity. The company makes the world’s largest haul truck with the carrying capacity of 450 tonnes.
