The Russian coal-extracting company SUEK has bought 28 haul trucks from the Belarusian automobile engineering company BelAZ, BelTA has learned.
According to the website of the Russian company, the project to deliver 28 high-capacity dump trucks to SUEK enterprises, which are located in five regions of Russia, has begun. The project is being implemented by SUEK's partner — the logistics company GEFCO.
The trucks are disassembled in Zhodino and are being transported using special flat wagons by rail. Several trucks have already left Zhodino for Russia's Republic of Khakassia and Khabarovsk Territory. More trucks will be shipped in December 2016. In particular, by the end of the year four 130-tonne trucks and two 220-tonne trucks will be delivered to SUEK's division Urgaugol, one 220-tonne truck will be shipped to the Razrez Kharanorsky division, and two 220-tonne trucks will be dispatched to the Razrez Tugnuisky division.
Another ten large-capacity dump trucks will be shipped in January-February 2017.
