In December 2021, the Zvezdny company acquired another MK-A20 mine dump truck manufactured by GHH Group.
The MK-A20 dump truck has an optimal power-to-load ratio, which reduces fuel consumption by 20% and significantly reduces carbon dioxide emissions. In addition, the MK-A20 is quite compact: the length of the machine does not exceed 9.4 m, width - 2.2 m, height - 2.5 m. The MK-A20 dump truck is capable of shipping up to 20 tons of rock mass at a time, without losing efficiency when sinking inclined workings. Its half-frames are folded at an angle of up to 42 degrees when turning and maneuvering, providing a turning radius of 8 meters, so that the dump truck can be used in underground workings and tunnels of small and medium cross-section.
"We have been delivering comprehensive solutions in the mining industry for more than 15 years and value our reputation. That is why we are attentive to the choice of partners. The cooperation between Zvezdny and GHH Group, which started several years ago, has reached the level of a mutually beneficial long-term partnership. So, our equipment fleet has more than ten units of MK-A20 mine dump trucks and, most likely, this is not the limit," said Viktor Bagno, CEO and founder of Zvezdny LLC.
The first MK-A20 was leased by the Zvezdny company in 2015 to get acquainted with the capabilities of the company's equipment. MK-A20 optimally suited the dimensions, technical and performance characteristics for the company's projects.
"Our company is equally attentive to all customers. The Zvezdny company is our long-standing and very valuable partner, with whom we have gone from the transfer of equipment for rent to sale. The MK-A20 is one of our flagship models that has won the sympathy of enterprises around the world," said Dmitry Zhukov, Executive Director of GHH Group in Russia.
