Komatsu HD785 Dumper creates history; logs 60,000 hrs at Tata Steel’s Noamundi Iron Ore Minesto

At Tata Steel’s Noamundi Iron Ore Mines, Larsen & Toubro had delivered and commissioned the first batch of Komatsu HD785 Dump Trucks way back in 2008. One of these Dumpers (Serial no N10029) crossed 60,000 hrs in July 2020 at Noamundi Iron Ore Mines, creating history in Komatsu’s journey in India. This is the first mining truck in the iron ore mining industry in India to achieve this feat. During 60,000 hours of operation, the HD785 Dumper completed 1,29,637 trips and hauled 12.48-million-ton material with 94% equipment availability.

Komatsu products are known for their superior quality and deliver high performance. The L&T team deployed on site at Noamundi provided round-the-clock service and was a critical success factor in achieving this milestone. L&T was engaged as the service partner to provide maintenance for Komatsu fleet under FMC contract besides extending equipment training for the operators.

Today, Tata Steel operates a total fleet of 64 Komatsu machines in its Ore Mines & Quarries Division in Noamundi (Jharkhand), Joda (Odisha) and Khondbond (Odisha). This fleet includes HD785 Dump Trucks, WA900 Wheel Loaders, GD825A Motor Graders, D275 Crawler Dozers, WD600 Wheel Dozer and Water Sprinklers. L&T has also supplied Komatsu machines to TSL’s captive Coal Mines in West Bokaro.
