Trolley Assisted Power Haulage

  • The Case for Trolley Assist | E & MJ
    The Case for Trolley Assist | E & MJ

    Benefits of Trolley Longer hauls and steeper grades present an opportunity for trolley assisted haulage. Typical truck payload requires a huge power source (around 2,200 kW) that has to be efficiently used. Keeping the gross vehicle weight for haul trucks as low as possible is also important, so power consumption is limited to just ore transport

    Trolley assisted truck haulage (Journal Article)

    Abstract. Preliminary assessment of trolley-assisted haulage at Palabora Mining Co. Ltd. of South Africa at the site of their open-pit copper mine indicates that a 22% reduction of fuel consumption and a saving of 16 million liters of diesel oil would be attained during 1982. The benefits are traceable to the completion in October, 1981, of a

    Sep 28, 2010 The trolley-assist hauler was born, designed for big, open pits with long, uphill ramps. Here's how it operated: After receiving its load from the shovel, the hauler drove under its own power to the base of the ramp, where it contacted a semi-portable overhead electric wire system by means of a spring-loaded trolley
