Americas to receive first Metso Outotec truck body to help mines and quarries haul more

bb95767aadfb6dd1 orgMetso Outotec’s new truck body will be in operation in the Americas

It has been designed to maximise the availability and performance of haul trucks while reducing the costs for service and maintenance.

The groundbreaking innovation that combines the benefits of rubber and a high-strength steel structure was launched in 2019 and has been well-received by customers. Recently, one of the world’s largest copper mines decided to invest in a Metso Outotec truck body. It is the first order globally for a truck with loading capacity of 360 tons and the first in the Americas. The customer is looking to increase payload of its trucks while also reducing maintenance.

“We will supply a truck body with lower weight and major volume capacity compared to the OEM body. We can prove with objective calculation the benefits the customer is going to receive, such as fuel savings, less maintenance, more uptime, the possibility to increase payload on each hauling, as well as improving the truck body’s life. All these benefits are answering to growing demand for environmental efficiency,” said Alfredo Rios, business support manager, Loading and Hauling, Americas, Metso Outotec.   

The truck body is part of Metso Outotec’s Planet Positive offering.
