The 60-ton BELAZ dump truck equipped with the engine of almost 800 hp compliant with Stage V European emissions regulations has been tested in Poland.

Stage V standards which have been introduced in European countries since last year are much stricter than the current European environmental regulations and are intended to restrict the emission of harmful substances and protect the environment for future generations.
The new ecological standard for off-road vehicles stipulates the limit for the volume of soot particles in exhaust gases. It implies mandatory use of highly efficient technologies for filtration of hard particles including active regeneration filters.

Belarusian mining equipment enjoys deserved popularity in the world. It is also well-known in Europe. BELAZ highly values its long-time partnership business relations and strives to ensure that its products meet the market needs and challenges. In February Polmark Kielce, the official representative of BELAZ, together with the experts from VOLVO PENTA (Sweden) in close cooperation with ERS Engineering Corp. (USA) and Western Technologies (service dealer of VOLVO PENTA in Belarus) successfully implemented the project for modification of the BELAZ-7555I dump truck with the payload capacity of 60 tons.

An advanced 16-litre VOLVO PENTA TWD1683VE engine of almost 800 hp (585 kW) compliant with the Stage V European ecological standard was installed on the BELAZ-7555I dump truck.

The trials during which the BELAZ truck equipped with the environmentally friendly engine demonstrated excellent efficiency, power, cost effectiveness and reliability were held in Poland in the mine of OZAROW GROUP, one of the major European producers of aggregates and cement.

The BELAZ-7555I dump truck equipped with the VOLVO PENTA engine is a good opening and a highly-demanded product for European and global customers. Even today OZAROW GROUP’s management is considering the procurement of one more BELAZ-7555I dump truck with the VOLVO PENTA engine in 2020.
