The mining industry has already recognised its role in making the industry more energy efficient and sustainable through setting goals and taking actions to meet carbon emissions targets. In part, this is being led by the International Council on Mining and Metals (ICMM) that has committed to achieving the goal of net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2050 or sooner.

To help the mining industry achieve this goal, ABB is working in partnership with OEMs and System Integrators, using its experience from innovating in sustainable transportation solutions since the late 19th century, to provide complete electric powertrains for heavy working vehicles and machinery in both underground and surface mining.

1Co2   Reducing emissions

Diesel powered heavy vehicles represent a significant proportion of the greenhouse gas emissions from the industry. By switching to electric, the total emissions can be reduced, helping mine operators move more quickly to becoming net-zero and meeting their environmental targets. If every truck, in every mine were electrified, every day we could remove 198,000 tons of CO₂ from the air we breath.

Lightweight   Protecting the workforce

Vehicles free of emissions reduce the need for underground ventilation, therefore reducing the impact associated with toxic air on both the workforce and operating costs.

Electric vehicles can increase the productivity of some applications as electric motors are more efficient and deliver more power to the wheels. This can provide higher operation speeds, reduced cycle time and increased reliability through power electronics.

It is estimated that by 2030 the total cost of ownership for a battery electric vehicle will be 20% lower than existing diesel trucks thanks to 20-30% lower maintenance costs and 40-60% lower fuel costs.
