BelAZ to ship six 45-tonne haul trucks to Siberia

BelAZ to ship six 45-tonne haul trucks to Siberia

MINSK, 7 September (BelTA) – Six haul trucks made by the Belarusian automobile engineering company BelAZ with the carrying capacity of 45 tonnes will arrive at the new gold deposit Sukhoi Log of OOO SL Zoloto, a joint venture of the state corporation Rostec and PAO Polyus (Russia), in Eastern Siberia in September, the BelAZ press service told BelTA.

BelAZ-7547 haul trucks are designed to work in Siberian climate conditions as per the customer’s specifications. Air temperatures in Siberia often drop to 50 degrees below zero in winter while summers are short and hot. Even when torrential rains and blizzards turn roads into seemingly unpassable mud, the Belarusian haul trucks will keep working, BelAZ representatives assured.

BelAZ’s official representative in Russia – OOO BelTransLogistic – will take care of delivery, assembly, and commissioning of the trucks.

The gold deposit Sukhoi Log is one of the world’s largest untapped field deposits of gold. Its resources are estimated at 63 million ounces of gold (962 million tonnes of ore with gold content at 2.1g per tonne).

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.
