Global technology and market leader in power grids to provide innovative solutions for electrifying haul trucks, saving billions of liters of diesel and related CO2 emissions
Hitachi Energy is delighted to have been selected as a technology vendor in the Charge On™ Innovation Challenge. Founded by BHP, Rio Tinto and Vale, together with multiple industry patrons, the initiative sees the world’s mining industry unite to solve one of the biggest challenges in decarbonizing mining operations: the electrification of haul trucks.
Hitachi Energy put forward an innovative proposal which met with the judges’ rigorous criteria for interoperable solutions. The flexible solution design enables electricity to be safely delivered to large battery-powered off-road electric haul trucks, while maintaining or improving productivity levels. The end-to-end solution connects the mine’s electrical grid directly to its haul trucks and other vehicles, such as excavators.
