Rigid trucks for open-pit and underground mines
Scania three, four and five-axle rigid haul trucks have payload capacities, ranging from 30t to 50t (metric), depending on site conditions. Scania rigids are a safe, reliable and versatile choice for in-pit mine haulage, from stockpile to processing plant, as well as post-process transport.
Scania always performs on-site studies to make sure each Scania vehicle is correctly specified and meets the customer’s performance criteria. The trucks can also be driven on public roads, thereby providing easy and quick transport between sites.
Around the world, from the heat of the desert to the cold of the arctic, Scania rigids are used in both open-pit and underground mines.
Heavy-duty tractors and road trains
Scania tractor-trailer combinations range from 40t to 180t, depending on road conditions and legal limitations. Road trains (B-doubles) are for example a flexible alternative to rail transport and conveyor systems, and are suitable for starting up mining operations quickly. Scania tractors can operate on gravel roads as well as on public roads.
Specialised process vehicles
Innovations developed together with customers have resulted in several specialised truck designs that have noticeably brought down the customer’s production costs. Some examples include:
- Explosives charging trucks
- Drill rig trucks
- Lubrication trucks
- Water and fuel tankers
- Crane and platform trucks
- Off-road personnel transport trucks
- Equipment transport
- Rescue vehicles
- Low-built concrete mixers
- Mobile generator sets
Field workshop service for mining vehicles
On-site service support is essential for the business. Scania can provide the right level of preventive maintenance and quick repairs on-site to keep the fleet moving and fulfil demanding contracts. Scania's flexible Field Workshop service has been designed to deliver the right level of availability for any fleet, helping our customers to achieve the productivity required by their customers– thus optimising the value of the investment in a Scania fleet.
Scania can have you up and running with a Scania Field Workshop in just two to three months with the right technology, the right people, and the right Scania parts for each vehicle fleet.
Driver training for the mining industry
Drive safely and save money. Drivers are crucial for the profitability of any transport business. Drivers are the single most important factor for fuel economy and wear-and-tear of the vehicle – and of course for safety. Around 10% can be saved on fuel alone, with a corresponding significant reduction in emissions. What’s more, tyres will last longer, and the powertrain will last longer and consume less oil.
Buses and coaches
A Scania bus will bring any operation’s most valuable asset, the personnel, safely and comfortably to work. Scania buses can be equipped with a wide range of safety features such as for example ESP, electronic braking system and alcolock.
Engines for power generation and industrial use
Scania delivers industrial engines for a vast range of applications such as power generation, stationary engine installations for crushers, pumps, screeners, etc. The engines meet the strictest of emission levels, including Tier 4i. Scania also delivers engines to OEMs for use in wheel loaders, excavators, ADTs and mobile crushers and cranes.
