VR truck bodies at Sishen

South Africa-based VR Steel is making progress with the rollout of its VR Truck Body product, which has been in use for the last year at Kumba Iron Ores Sishen mine. Of Sishens main fleet of 44 Komatsu 730E diesel-electric drive trucks (of which 42 operate under trolley-assist), two have been running with VR bodies installed since January 2008. An order for a further nine is in the process of being completed.
