The latest addition to Epiroc's electric-powered fleet is the Minetruck MT2010 Battery, which is now available in North America.

The sturdy truck is built to transport heavy loads of up to 20t and designed to fit through narrow underground passages.

The electric version of the MT2010 shares many of its diesel counterpart's features, including its compact design, hard-wearing components, fast incline speeds and easy manoeuvrability.

Travis Battley, business line manager at Epiroc Canada, commented: "The diesel-fuelled Minetruck MT2010 has earned an excellent reputation in tough environments across the globe.

"But we switched on an even better source of power two years ago, with the successful launch of our Scooptram ST7 Battery. Now we're happy to add our electric Minetruck to the emission-free workforce that can boost productivity in operations with an eye on the future."

The Minetruck MT2010 Battery has undergone more than 20,000 hours of field tests and operating trials to ensure optimal performance and dependability.

According to Epiroc, a high-longevity battery can keep the Minetruck up and running during lengthy shifts. It can be replaced or charged quickly to tackle the next workload.

The diesel-free powertrain eliminates harmful particulate and gas emissions and generates less noise and waste heat.

Epiroc also offers diesel-free underground electric drill rigs, loaders and ground-support machinery.
