Extraction and Propulsion

Integrated, advanced propulsion technology enabling customers to increase productivity, reduce maintenance costs and improve performance.

7 Ton Battery Load Haul Dump

Wabtec battery-powered vehicles are leading the way towards green mining by eliminating diesel particulate emissions without sacrificing performance or flexibility. Our technology cuts ventilation costs and outperforms diesel machines on productivity.

Fuel Saver for Wabtec AC Drive Systems

Fuel is the single largest mine haul truck operating cost. Each large truck consumes between 25 and 55 gallons per hour. Wabtec’s specialized software upgrade for mine haul trucks running Wabtec drive systems in sizes 240T, 320T and 360T reduces diesel engine speed at optimal points with little loss in electric drive propulsion performance, cutting fuel consumption.

Contactor Elimination

With technological advances made in the development of its latest AC electric drive systems, Wabtec is now offering upgrade kits for drive systems that use contactors in the control system to activate retard groups. In this upgrade kit, RP contactors are replaced by solid-state inverters that do not require inspections or maintenance while increasing drive-system reliability and performance.
