ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih has purchased two MAZ-6501S5 dump trucks within the framework of the program to update its fleet of trucks. The enterprise allocated UAH 3.5 million for the purchase of new equipment.
Each MAZ can carry up to 20 tons of cargo - mostly bulk. At the same time, special equipment is capable of lifting on board more bulky cargo, for example, metal structures or various equipment. There is enough space for this, because the length of the car is almost 4.5 meters, and the width reaches 2.5 meters.
The dump trucks have a rear dump platform, a platform heating function and an engine heater. It is very convenient during the cold season. The technique is maneuverable, versatile, easy to operate.
The driver's cab is equipped with smart electronics. It allows you to monitor the technical condition of the car, monitor the operation of all its systems and processes. The vehicle's top speed is electronically limited to 85 kilometers per hour.
New MAZs are being tested in production conditions. They are also involved in the transportation of spare parts for equipment from the central maintenance and repair department to the workshops of the enterprise. In addition, dump trucks will serve blast furnace shop # 2 - they will carry materials and other cargoes required for stable operation of the ninth blast furnace.
Everything in the driver's cab is provided for comfortable work: a comfortable seat, climate control system, reliable noise isolation.
As a reminder, in 2020, the company purchased two MAZ dump trucks, as well as a MAZ flatbed vehicle equipped with a loading platform with a crane-manipulator. Also, a forklift Maximal with a lifting capacity of 5 tons, which is designed for lifting, moving, unloading and loading pallets with the help of forks - special attachments, has started to work. It is used to unload pallets with refractory bricks used for lining converters.
The Mining Department is operating a new KrAZ off-road vehicle and a combined road vehicle MAZ.
In 2021, ArcelorMittal Kryvyi Rih will continue to invest in the purchase of special equipment.
