itself with all-electric mini excavators and tracked dump-

ers. Without fumes or noise, they are a safer and more

environmentally friendly solution - especially in sensitive


The CB Electric Excavator is only 28″ (698 mm) wide

and has folding ROPS so getting through the tightest of

areas becomes no problem.

With over 500 lbs of lifting capacity it can also run a

demolition hammer adding versatility and efficiency.

What's New in Plant & Equipment


ADTs Converted to Service Vehicles

Phosphate mining is done on a huge scale in

Morocco, with some of the world’s largest

machines working in harsh, hot and often

remote locations. The size of the machine

presents a service problem.

It is not feasible to take these large mining

machines back to a central service bay, so

the service bay has to travel to the equip-

ment. And big machines demand big service


OCP mining company solved this by con-

verting an A30F articulated hauler . The com-

pany has three large open cast mines em-

ploying 775 people.

Production is done using the drill-and-

blast method. Once blasting has occurred

the waste is stripped by draglines and the

phosphate is then loaded by electric shovel

or wheel loader onto trucks for haulage to

the primary crusher for initial processing.

The fleet is comprised of six draglines and

two electric shovels, two large wheel loaders,

six drill rigs, 22 rigid dump trucks (from 75

to 150 tonne capacity), 24 bulldozers, three

graders and three water spray trucks


Big solution to servicing big


Given the enormous size of many of these

machines, servicing is mainly done in the

field. The modified A30F hauler will reduce

machine downtime.

The hauler’s chassis and frame is a stand-

ard solution from the factory and the service box was

supplied by Casablanca company, Remorques

Equipement,. Equipment on-board includes a small

crane, a compressor, a welding set, equipment for per-

forming oil changes, tanks containing various oils and

water, greasing equipment, and a workbench.

OCP provided a technical specification of what they

wanted so both haulers were also equipped with a fire

suppression system.

Delivered in June 2016, the two haulers are now

operating at the Benguérir and the Youssoufia mines.
