ETF mining trucks Don’t Call it a Dump-Truck

ETF Mining Equipment is a privately-held company with headquarters in Slovenia, manufactures the largest trucks in the world for mostly off highway usage. They are known for zero emissions and reduced noise free of diesel engines. Also, more mine output due to vehicle offerings of a overland truck train configuration. ETF is a different kind of company and business model.

The ETF mining trucks start with 250 metric tonnes of payload, with the largest truck capable of 565 tonnes. With such huge payloads and configurations this can mean the capability of hauling 4 times what a competitor company is offering.

Such trucks are a battery electric all-wheel-drive surface mining rig with energy harvesting and yes once again, free of diesel engines or turbines.

As mentioned previously the all-wheel-drive component; this all equates to less weather delays from snow, rain or other conditions. So, likewise the mine can keep producing without downtime. ETF states that their vehicles have a 95% technical availability rating, meaning instead of repairs an exchange of a component is performed and the truck has less time out of service.

The company touts themselves a different kind of company; from the vehicle offering to delivery. When purchasing, the company ships in containers to the mine site parts, whereby ETF assembles the trucks on site. However, there is a minimum purchase order of 6 units.
In consideration of environmental impact and payload, ETF Mining Equipment is definitely worth much consideration for mining corporations. Also, based upon internet research this corporation has delivered to mines in Chile and not limited to a European market.
