The 100th chassis of dump truck BELAZ-75581 with payload capacity of 90 metric tons was assembled at OJSC "BELAZ"

June 17, 2016

On June 16 the chassis No. 100 of dump truck BELAZ-75581 with payload capacity of 90 metric tons and AC/AC electromechanical transmission rolled off the assembly line of the super-heavy vehicles production department at OJSC "BELAZ" - Management Company of Holding "BELAZ-HOLDING". The truck has successfully passed the run-in and acceptance testing, and proceeded to the factory shipping department in order to depart to the consumer in the short run.

Before the launch of BELAZ-7558 series at OJSC "BELAZ" world manufacturers of such equipment produced dump trucks with payload capacity of 90 metric tons only with hydromechanical transmission. It was our company, who changed this tradition by creating the world's first 90-tonner with AC/AC electromechanical transmission.

Chassis No. 1 of dump truck BELAZ-75581 equipped with the electric drive by "Electrosila" (branch of OJSC "Power Machines", St. Petersburg, Russia) and CUMMINS QST 30-C was assembled in experimental workshop of the enterprise at the end of 2012. In September 2013, this truck took part in the prestigious international exhibition "Bauma Africa-2013", and then stayed to work in the mines of South Africa. Chassis No. 2 was commissioned even earlier, in the end of July 2013, when it was added to the fleet of the transport company "Region-42" (Kemerovo region, Russia).

In December 2013 Mr. Alexander Galkin, Chief Engineer of "Region-42" LLC, spoke of BELAZ-75581 as follows: “This truck is more than suitable for Kuzbass conditions. Overall, this class of payload capacity is in high demand in our region. Moreover, I think that the 90-tonner with electromechanical transmission will be highly appreciated at Kuzbass coal companies, and this truck has many benefits. It is an excellent truck! I believe that BELAZ-75581 in this segment of the market is able to take leading positions.

Confirmation of the words of Mr. Alexander Galkin was the fact that within a short period of time this truck has been awarded the Grand Prix at the prestigious international exhibition in Novokuznetsk - "Russian Coal and Mining 2014". Moreover, this is not the only reward it got.

Today this dump truck operates not only in Russia and South Africa, but also in many other countries, gradually gaining its own segment of the world market of mining equipment.

Equipment with trademark BELAZ stands for reliability, efficiency and safety of operation in severe and sometimes even extreme climatic conditions. High technological level of production and timely response to customer requests allows BELAZ to compete successfully in the world market of mining equipment.
