Myanmar Thura has made its first order of Terex Trucks rigid haulers, purchasing 10 new TR60s to cover expansion at the company’s jade mine in Kachin State, Northern Myanmar reported on 26 August.
The order for 55 ton capacity TR60s will be supplied by local Terex Trucks dealer, LHM, which has supplied Myanmar Thura with equipment for years.
Jade mining has limited concessions due to the seasons, and can only operate six months out of the year. The TR60s will be required to work day and night in two shifts, hauling 55 ton loads of earth, rock and jade from the mine, where the elements will be separated for further processing.
The TR60 rigid dump trucks are planned for delivery by October.
