Whether a LIEBHERR, HITACHI, CAT or KOMATSU haul truck, the system can be implemented to improve the efficiency of re-fuelling, reduce the cost of re-fuelling and mitigate the risk of environmental contamination.  Benefit summary:

  • Ability to refuel without the use of a local operator.
  • Increased operator safety.
  • No diversion of the trucks from the circuit.
  • Increase mine truck availability.
  • Remote refuelling skids can be relocated to optimal positions as the mine workings develop.
  • MInimized spillages and environmental contamination.
