The pace of switching to electric mining vehicles is highest underground

LONDON, May 31, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The use of electric LHDs and trucks in underground mining delivers a range of benefits including reduced ventilation and cooling requirements, reduced carbon dioxide emissions, improved working conditions, and lower maintenance costs. As miners strive to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, many are beginning to invest in battery-powered and electric-powered mining fleets as they embark on the long-term goal of diesel displacement.

The Development of Electric Mining Vehicles in Surface and Underground Mining market research report offered by GlobalData Plc analyses the development of electric vehicles in the mining industry.

Benefits of Trolley Assist Trucks

  • 40-50% lower fuel consumption and up to 50% reduction in fuel cost.

  • Up to 90% reduction in fuel and engine costs while the truck is running on a trolley.

  • Truck speed almost doubles while running on a trolley.

  • Over 10% improvement in fleet productivity.

  • Lower exhaust emissions and lesser engine noise.

Benefits of Battery-Powered Trucks and Hydrogen Fuel Cell Electric Trucks

  • A fuel cell battery system is more efficient than an internal combustion engine.

  • Potential to reduce on-site diesel emissions by up to 80%.

  • Lower maintenance costs on the powertrain.

  • Zero exhaust emissions and less noise pollution as an electric motor makes almost no noise.

Benefits of Electric LHDs and Trucks

  • Significant reduction in underground mine ventilation cost.

  • Lower cooling requirement inside the mine.

  • More efficient energy consumption thus reduced operating costs.

  • Lower CO2 and heat emissions thus lower emissions and improved working environments for operators.

  • Lower maintenance costs compared with similar diesel-powered machines.

  • Less noise pollution.
