Min­ing truck trial

Dalby Herald - - NEWS -

NEW Hope Group’s New Acland Mine on the Dar­ling Downs is tri­alling a diesel and nat­u­ral gas hy­brid truck which uses nat­u­ral gas as its dom­i­nant fuel. New Acland gen­eral man­ager David Vink said the trial, de­vel­oped by Mine En­ergy So­lu­tions, was fo­cused on find­ing a vi­able al­ter­na­tive fuel to re­duce costs and truck emis­sions at the mine. “New Acland has a long track record as an in­dus­try leader in min­ing in­no­va­tion,” Mr Vink said. A nat­u­ral gas re-fu­elling sta­tion has been in­stalled at New Acland Mine to sup­port the 18-month trial.
