Abstract

Fuel consumption in the Australian mining sector has been increasing more rapidly than any other sector. Loading, hauling and dumping operations consume up to 26 percent of the energy in underground mines. Articulated Dump Trucks (ADTs) are frequently used in underground operations due to their low profile and capacity to deal with the poor haul road conditions and tight turns. The Key Performance Indicators (KPls) that influence the fuel consumption of underground ADTs are payload, speed, wet conditions, fleet management, fue quality, mine planning, truck and road maintenance, total resistance, driver skills and truck design.
