MINSK, 19 May (BelTA) – The export of BelAZ vehicles to Buryatia may increase nearly two times by the end of 2022, BelTA learned from the BelAZ press service.

Belarus and Buryatia plan to give a new impetus to cooperation in the manufacturing sector. This matter was discussed at a meeting of the working group on cooperation between Belarus and this region of the Russian Federation. The meeting was attended by government officials and business people from Buryatia as well as top managers of Belarus' biggest companies, including BelAZ.

Buryatia miners are very familiar with the Belarusian mining equipment. More than 200 BelAZ mining dump trucks with the payload capacity of 30 to 240 tonnes and special-purpose equipment have been operated at more than ten mining enterprises in the region for a long time, the press service informed.

In 2021, five BelAZ vehicles were delivered to Buryatia, two more BelAZ trucks were shipped in 2022. An agreement was signed to supply two BelAZ-7530G mining dump trucks and six BelAZ-7513D mining dump trucks to Tunguisky Mine. In addition, the work is underway to implement an agreement of intent to deliver mining equipment with the payload capacity of 130 to 220 tonnes to the SUEK company until 2024.

Thus, the deliveries of BelAZ dump trucks to Buryatia are expected to almost double by the end of this year.

The public joint-stock company (OAO) BelAZ is the managing company of the holding company BelAZ. BelAZ is the world's largest manufacturer of haul trucks and transport equipment for the mining industry and the civil engineering industry. BelAZ occupies about 30% of the world market of haul trucks with an extremely large carrying capacity. The company makes the world's largest haul truck with the carrying capacity of 450 tonnes.
