Abstract

The potential for energy savings in truck haulage operations has motivated mining companies to investigate ways of improving energy efficiency of haulage operations. Payload, truck velocity, haul road condition, road design, fuel quality, weather condition and truck driver skill are among the important parameters that affect fuel consumption of mining haul trucks. Payload variance has the most significant impact on the mine productivity, diesel energy consumption, greenhouse gas emission and associated costs.
