Scania to showcase Heavy Tipper truck for on-site operations at MINExpo 2021
Scania will participate in this year's MINExpo to demonstrate how the shift towards sustainable operations goes hand-in-hand with increased uptime and enhanced total operating economy. In its stand, Scania will have two vehicles on display: a Scania 8x4 Heavy Tipper for on-site operations and an International HX Series 6x4 tractor for outbound haulage.
Scania's Heavy Tipper is designed solely for mining operations. It offers an efficient transport solution with lower environmental impact and cost per ton compared to traditional solutions. With its robust components, the payload capacity is 40 tonnes with the 8x4 configuration (60 tonnes GVW). All Scania mining trucks can be powered by Euro 5 or 6 engines that run on up to 100 percent HVO (hydrotreated vegetable oil) or FAME type fuels (Fatty Acid Methyl Ester), offering CO2-reductions of up to 90 percent. There are also alternatives with LNG or CNG for natural or biogas propulsion.
"We have the tools to prove that mining operations are among those industries where a shift towards sustainable solutions is beneficial for all parties involved," said Sven-Erik Gustafsson, Head of Scania Mining. "The next step is to level up and implement our offer within ACE. Autonomous, Connected and Electrified vehicles are already in our portfolio and those solutions will be a real game changer for the mining industry during this decade."
Showcasing the International HX Series at MINExpo highlights the Canadian mining project the two companies have been working on for several years. The project, an early example of synergies among the TRATON GROUP, uses a customer-centric approach to leverage the investments Scania has made developing mining products with the service and support network delivered by International.
Scania and Navistar, the owner of the International trademark, are fully owned brands within the TRATON GROUP. In North America, and especially Canada, Scania mining customers can benefit from services delivered by International-branded workshops.
