Coal Mine Opts For Articulated Dump Trucks
The mining company, Rudnik Uglja Gracanica, has chosen
Terex Trucks articulated haulers for work on its Gracanica
open pit coal mine in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Already a customer, Rudnik Uglja Gracanica has pur-
chased two additional TA300 articulated dump trucks for
hauling coal at the company’s mine bringing the total of
Terex Trucks in the fleet to nine.
The 28 tonne capacity trucks
will work two shifts per day haul-
ing coal from the pit to the storage
yard. The coal is then transported
to a power plant by on-highway
trucks or rail.
Situated 9 km north-west
of Bugojno, the Gracanica mine
measures 2,000 m by 800 m along-
side the river Vrbas.
The trucks are equipped with
independent front suspension
to enable excellent traction con-
trol, making it ideal for the rocky
Bosnian and Herzegovina coal
The articulated dump truck
has a maximum payload of 28
tonnes (30.9 US tons), and 276 kW
(370 hp) engine power.
The trucks were supplied by Terex Trucks dealer, LAGER
D.O.O. Headquartered in Bosnia and Herzegovina, LAGER
D.O.O covers countries throughout south-east Europe
including Croatia, Slovenia, Serbia, Montenegro, FYR
Macedonia and Albany.
