BELAZ has agreed to supply eight 130 t dump trucks to mining contractor PT Darma Henwa Tbk for use at an Indonesia coal mine in East Kalimantan.
The contract for the supply of BELAZ-75131 mining dump trucks was signed in Jakarta and will see the machines transport overburden at the Bengalon coal mine.
“Taking into account climatic conditions, those mining dump trucks are equipped with the corresponding rubber suitable for tropical conditions as well as AC and modified cooling system,” BELAZ said.
BELAZ is represented in Southeast Asia by its authorised dealer, Belazia PTE LTD. The supply contract was signed following negotiations held by Belazia PTE LTD managers and representatives of PT Darma Henwa Tbk, the biggest contractor in the country, according to BELAZ.
Indonesian mining companies have been operating BELAZ equipment for many years, with mining dump trucks with a payload capacity of 45 t 110 t and 130 t.
“Indonesian operating companies highly appreciate the capabilities of BELAZ equipment, which is a decisive factor in opting for Belarusian mining dump trucks and special equipment,” the company said.
