A defence public sector company BEML Ltd on Tuesday launched an indigenously designed and developed nation’s first 205T Electric Drive Rear Dump Truck (Model BHQOS-E), with an objective of strengthening the Make in India initiative.
“With the introduction of this new generation Dump Truck, BEML has touched another milestone in its R&D efforts in achieving self-reliance, enhanced productivity in mining operations and increased production, apart from optimizing costs. BEML acknowledges the encouragement being provided by CIL & its subsidiary for Make in India policy of GoI” said Deepak Kumar Hota, CMD, BEML.
Powered by TierII emission compliant Modular Common Rail Electronic Engine with 2300 HP, BH205E is an electric drive rear dump truck designed for large scale mining operations. Consumption of transmission oil, final drive and brake cooling oil are eliminated reducing the environmental impact over its life cycle, BEML said.
What’s more, this Dump Truck is environmental friendly and weighs 335 tons when fully loaded but is easily maneuverable with power-steering and short turning radius.
