BelAZ dump trucks with the lifting capacity of 110 tonne have been put into operation at the coal minefield Tavan Tolgoi in the Gobi desert in Mongolia.
The first batch of BelAZ 75135 dump trucks were delivered to the company Khishig Arvin at the end of 2013. The machinery was assembled and mounted under the supervision of technical experts of the Zhodino based company. Khishig Arvin has plans to buy more Belarus-made dump trucks in the future.
The coal minefield Tavan Tolgoi is located in the south of Mongolia’s Gobi desert. It is one of the world’s biggest coal minefields.
The Belarusian company informed that Mongolian companies are very well familiar with Belarus-made dump trucks. Mongolian companies have been operating these trucks for quite a long time and have plans to keep doing it in the future.
