MINSK, 16 August (BelTA) – The 1,500th BelAZ 7530 haul truck with the carrying capacity of 220 tonnes rolled off the assembly line, BelTA learned from the press service of the Belarusian automobile engineering company BelAZ.
The vehicle will soon be shipped to the open-pit mine Berezovsky which is part of the enterprise group ZAO Stroyservis, one of the leading mining companies in Russia's Kuzbass. The press service noted that 220-tonne haul trucks enjoy steady demand in the global market.

BelAZ haul trucks with a large carrying capacity are equipped with a passive safety mechanism which ensures stability and safety of vehicles in an emergency situation. The driver's cabin is fitted with digital devices and an air conditioning system.More about Economy
