“There is a need for electromechanical drive dumpers and tippers powered also by electric prime movers like battery with alternator having a regenerative braking system coupled with user-friendly, self-diagnostic and prognostic features,” adds Ashim Kumar Mukherjee, Technical Advisor, Belaz-Enrika Mining Equipment Services.
“A new segment opening up is the import of second-hand dump trucks, either through outright purchase from different agencies or bought at overseas auctions. These are then refurbished and reconditioned in India,” says Mukherjee. “Thriveni Earthmovers recently bought a lot of second-hand, heavy earthmoving machines, including off-highway dump trucks up to 240 tonne capacity through such a process, thereby minimising its investment and enabling customised rebuilding, resulting in high techno-economic benefits. Such brought, refurbished and used dump trucks include some OJSC BELAZ 240-tonne diesel-electric dump trucks.”
