Kitco News

Komatsu is delivering 17 Komatsu 830E-5 and nine Komatsu 930E-5 trucks to Boliden's mines in Sweden and Norway.

The 830E-5 is a diesel truck with an electric drive train. Komatsu said the truck's technology significantly reduces diesel exhaust emissions and will comply with Stage V haul truck regulation, a European Union directive limiting emissions from non-road mobile machinery.

Delivery is ongoing and is forecast to be completed April 2020.

The trucks will also be fitted with Komatsu's Modular Mining, dispatch and maintenance system software.
