Autonomous trucks for mining company in Norway


Volvo Trucks has just signed a landmark agreement with Norway-based Brønnøy Kalk to provide its first commercial autonomous solution for hauling limestone from an open pit mine to a nearby port.

The solution for Brønnøy Kalk consists of limestone being transported by six autonomous Volvo FH trucks on a 5 km long track through tunnels between the mine itself and the crusher.

Tests of this solution have been carried out successfully and will continue throughout 2018. The autonomous vehicles will become fully operational by the end of 2019.
